Tree falls on power line, knocking out power for 300 Stonington residents


STONINGTON — A fallen tree limb on Pequot Trail took down several sections of electrical line this afternoon, leaving over 300 customers of Connecticut Light & Power without electricity.

Spokesperson Mitch Gross reported that the company received notification of power outages in Stonington at 12:30 this afternoon. A tree limb fell onto a section of electrical line, bringing other sections of line down with it. Crews are currently working to repair the four sections of fallen lines. Gross estimated that power would be restored by early this evening.

In the meantime, 306 customers in the area — including those on Pequot Trail, Taugwonk Spur Road and Farmholme Road — are without power until the lines can be repaired.
