Connecticut Light and Power is reporting that, as of 9:30 a.m. Thursday, approximately 230 customers in Cheshire are without power.
The outages are the result of high winds and rain that hit the state Wednesday night into Thursday morning, with some places seeing wind gusts reach as high as 60 miles per hour. The strong winds were enough to knock some trees and tree limbs down around town, many of which fell on power lines.
Crews for Cheshire Public Works have been out this morning working to remove the downed trees and allow CL&P to work on restoring power. The 230 homes and facilities without electricity makes up about two percent of the utility company's customer in Cheshire.
