NORWALK, Conn. – Darkness descended on key Norwalk streets when the sun set Thursday, with no traffic lights to guide drivers during rush hour, due to a power outage.
About 1 percent of the CL&P’s Norwalk customers were without power out at noon but the number spiked to about 14 percent at about 4 p.m. CL&P spokesman Mitch Gross attributed that to a problem at a substation on New Canaan Avenue. He didn’t know how long it would take to fix.
Main Street south of New Canaan Avenue was dark, creating controlled chaos at many intersections as drivers made do. East Avenue was also dark. Evening meetings at City Hall were cancelled.
The power came back on at about 5:45 p.m.
