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.
