NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Early Tuesday morning, a brief power outage spanning a few blocks east and west of Union Station impacted a total of 1,840 customers.

Between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m., some New Haven residents reported hearing a loud noise just before it went dark. United Illuminating reported a total of 1,840 outages, at 3.15% of customers served. This ran roughly from Arch Street to Union Avenue, and from Water Street to South Water Street, and included a number of residential areas, as well as the New Haven Police Department and Union Station.

Notably, Union Station and the Police Department were up on generator power within about a half hour of the initial outage. Train service was not impacted.

Mike Foley, a spokesman with United Illuminating, told News 8 that a cable went out. While unsure of the cause, UI worked to reroute and restore power.
