Outages leave over 3,300 residents without power, one school dismissed early
NAUGATUCK- Over 3,300 customers in the Waterbury area were without power Tuesday.
Naugatuck and Waterbury residents had the biggest outage this morning with over 2,800 residents in both towns without power.
Waterbury school officials said that Gilmartin school was scheduled to be dismissed at 1 p.m.
According to Eversource, the power outages were first reported shortly before 5 a.m. in Naugatuck. Cold weather temperatures in Naugatuck caused a piece of equipment to fall out of place.
Crews began isolating the outage by rerouting power which then caused residents in Waterbury to lose power.
Power was restored after going out in northern parts of the state. Enfield had 214 outages, Ellington had 97 outages and East Windsor had 262 outages.
The outages in East Windsor were caused by downed wires between Broad Brook Road and Melrose Road.
Stonington and North Stonington had some outages as well but less than 100 residents are without power. Power there was restored.
