Anyone else had trouble sleeping with the howling winds this morning?
Downed trees led to power outages around the state and in Hartford, where Annie Fisher STEM and Montessori schools on Plainfield Street, Breakthrough II Magnet and Upper M.D. Fox on Lyme Street, and Weaver High — all in the city’s North End — were closed today because of no electricity in their buildings.
Weaver’s Culinary Arts and Journalism and Media academies suspended classes at 9:30 a.m., schools spokesman David Medina said in a statement.
Police also reported a car crash that closed Prospect Street by Elizabeth Park. As of 10 a.m., Connecticut Light & Power was indicating that 1,864 Hartford households, or 3 percent of the utility’s city customers, remained without electricity.
