High winds and heavy rain brought down trees and power lines throughout Westport Thursday morning.
Several roads were either closed, or restricted to one-way access while tree and power crews cleaned up the mess and restored power. More than 3,000 CL&P customers in Westport were without power at about 9 a.m. and several major traffic lights were reduced to stop signs.
At 5:30 p.m. more than 700 (six percent) CL&P customers were still without power in Westport.
