Police in Cheshire said there are multiple road closures of side roads due to tree limbs and wires down. A section of Waterbury Road by Mixville Road is down to one way traffic, police said Wednesday morning. Westbound traffic is going through, but eastbound traffic is being detoured.

A tree is currently blocking part of Coleman Road.

In Southington, police are reporting portions of several roads closed due to trees and wires down. They include Pratt Street, Welch Road, Mt. Vernon Road, East Street, Meriden Avenue and Kensington Road. Queen Street is southbound only from Loper Street to Lazy Lane.
