UPDATED: NSTAR Says Power Out in Parts of Weston
Heavy winds likely to blame as some neighborhoods lose power; service should be restored today.
As of 11:40 a.m., about 200 Weston residents are without power following what NSTAR said was a power failure caused by heavy winds and resulting tree-related damages to wires and equipment.
According to NSTAR spokesman Mike Durand, an estimated 1,600 customers lost power this morning and were quickly restored. Most customer calls came from the Pinecroft Road, Montville Road and Country Drive areas, he said.
Durand said all customers should have power restored today.
"We'll be out there to make repairs until all of them are done," he said.
Original story: Power is reported to be out in some neighborhoods in Weston, though the extent of the failure is not known.
A news tip indicated power was out in some areas of southern Weston, including Weston High School.
Police dispatcher Paula Nicholson confirmed the power outage and said sections were out "all over town," but had no other information.
