(WTNH) -- Power outages now under 20,000 after severe storms roll across the state.
"It will be a very busy evening for us," CL&P's Mitch Gross said in response to getting the power back on.
The hardest hit community is Cornwall, where 95% of the town is without power. Canterbury reported numerous trees and power lines down, causing 58% of the town to be without power. Windham was also hit hard, as 32% of the town is without power.
At one point, 37,057 customers were without power across the state around 6 p.m.
"About 20% of Torrington without power at one point. CLP is on scene, said the substation on Franklin is down. Once they get that up most will have power," Torrington's Mayor Ryan Bingham tweeted .
We're getting lots of Report It pictures and videos of rain and even hail pouring in across the state.
Route 109 in New Milford is closed Route 202 because of a single car crash at Route 202. Route 202 in Torrington is also closed at Albert Street due to a tree down in wires. A similar situation happened in Tolland, where Route 30 is closed between Lenord Circle and Eaton Road due to downed wires.
All three roads are expected to be closed for up to eight hours.
