Freezing rain brings icy conditions to parts of Litchfield County

Posted: Updated:

Parts of Litchfield County saw some icy conditions today.

The Department of Public Works says the ice brought down a number of power lines and a number of tree limbs, closing off roads like Laurel Street in Winchester.

People at Winchester Center say they've never seen the ice on trees so thick before.

Public Works says that part of town lost power.

Public Works adds once it is done tending to the downed trees and power lines, it will re-treat the roads.
