NBC Universal, Inc.

Several Connecticut towns are cleaning up after heavy rain and strong winds moved through the state on Monday.

Old Lyme

More than half of the Eversource customers living in town lost their power during the storms. A total of 56% of customers lost their power earlier in the afternoon. By 11 p.m., about 53% of customers were still without power, but power was restored for almost all Old Lyme customers on Tuesday morning.

Old Lyme residents we spoke to said there were sheets and sheets of rain and when the wind picked up, they lost power, only to get it back and lose it again.

"Our generator didn't work, so we're going over to grandma and grandpa's and our tree fell down which adds just another level of awesome," Old Lyme resident Kevin Conley said.


The brick facade of a building on Maple Avenue fell to the street. Hartford police said there were no injuries.


There were downed wires at 212 Great Neck Road, according to the town's first selectman.

Calls were made to Eversource to restore power in the area.


Crews responded to Tolland Stage Road after wires came down and the road was closed.
