Albany Ave. in West Hartford reopened after storm damage repairs

Hartford

(WTNH)–The afternoon thunderstorms rolling through Connecticut Wednesday have already caused power outages, downed power lines and trees in the state.

West Hartford police and fire were at the intersection of Sims Road and Albany Avenue in West Hartford, where downed electrical wires and a tree are impacting traffic.

Eversource had to cut power before working on repairs. The intersection has since reopened. Crews will still be in the area, so continue to use caution when traveling through the area.

Albany Avenue in West Hartford is closed due to downed power lines.

In Wethersfield, Prospect Street from Wolcott Hill Road to Maple Street will be closed until further notice, according to the Wethersfield Volunteer Fire Department. Eversource is reporting the scene. Drivers are asked to seek alternate routes.

A downed tree is causing delays for Metro-North between Waterbury and Naugatuck. Commuters are advised to listen for announcements at your station.

Over 1,170 UI customers in Shelton and Trumbull are experiencing outages, as well as around 1,000 Eversource customers in Naugatuck, Southbury and Waterbury.
