NEW MILFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut Light & Power is reporting a power outage affecting nearly 10,000 customers in western Connecticut.
Two substations in the area were knocked offline and utility workers are trying to figure out what went wrong.
Some locations affected include Kent, New Milford, Sherman, Warren and Washington.
CL&P officials tell the TV station that the utility is not releasing a time estimate for restoring power until the cause is determined.
A utility representative did not immediately return a call seeking more information.

The cleanup has begun in some parts of Long Island while others continue to deal with flooding from heavy rain fall that began late Tuesday and intensified on Wednesday. Cars remain stranded after rain pounded the area. More than 13 inches of rain fell in Islip. The National Weather Service said the rain was the largest event on record for New York State in a 24-hour period.
