Most of Power Restored in Litchfield County




    Thousands of Connecticut Light and Power customers were without power in several Litchfield County towns on Monday morning, but much if the power has since been restored.

    Connecticut Light & Power officials said two substations went down, cutting power to more than 14,000 customers. That number was down to less than 1,400 as of 10:45 a.m.

    Bridgewater was hardest hit, with 100-percent of the town without electricity. Power remains out for only two of the town's 961 customers.

    Power remains out for hundreds in New Milford, Sherman and Kent.

    CL&P officials did not know what caused the two substations to fail.
