Last night’s heavy snow downed trees and power lines throughout Westport.
As of 9 a.m., over 1,100 customers were without electricity. That’s down from more than 1,500 after midnight.
One of the most treacherous situations is on North Avenue, at the Merritt Parkway overpass. A large tree dangles over the parkway.
Nearby resident Tommy Greenwald spoke to an Eversource crew. They told him that power would “definitely” be back today.
However, the Merritt was about to be shut down, to clear the tree.
