FAIRFIELD - The four-day heat wave is over, but the violent storms that brought relief have still left about 17,000 customers without power across the state.
Hundreds of Connecticut Light & Power customers in Litchfield County lost electricity Tuesday night, including all 832 in Colebrook. Several thousand outages are reported in lower Fairfield County, most of them in New Canaan.
United Illuminating says 3,800 of its customers in southern Connecticut are without electricity, including more than 1,000 in Stratford.
Metro-North said there would be no train service on the New Canaan branch this morning after a tree fell and pulled down seven catenary lengths of overhead wire and damaged much of the supporting steel during the storm.
Repairs were under way and expected to be completed in time for afternoon peak service.
