Police, fire respond to few storm-related calls Monday


Emergency crews responded to relatively few storm-related calls Monday, as a rainstorm brought showers, fog and high winds throughout the day.

Most calls involved tree branches falling into power lines or blocking roadways. As of 9:30 p.m., Eversource reported less than half a dozen customer power outages in the area.

Wallingford police said a tree branch fell through a car windshield on Cook Hill Road, adding that there were no reported injuries. Traffic was slowed temporarily between Montowese Trail and Jones Road around 3 p.m. as crews cleared glass from the road.

Police responded to another Wallingford call around 8:30 p.m. when a tree branch fell on power lines in the area of 122 S. Ridgeland Road. The branch reportedly caused some sparking, and the Wallingford Electric Division was called to the scene.

In Cheshire, a tree limb fell on a wire and caused sparking, which closed Cherry Street near Route 68 between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., police said.

Police in Meriden said they responded to one report of a branch blocking a roadway that was cleared quickly.

Southington police said they received one call about a tree branch that knocked a power line off of a house.
