Power was restored by 9:15 a.m. to the more than 1,000 New Canaan customers of Eversource who had lost power just before the workday started Monday, due to a downed wire near Weed and Elm Streets.
A fallen tree limb caused the wire to come down at about 7:30 a.m., officials said.
Walter Stewart’s Market was be able to reopen at 1 p.m.
As of 9 a.m., 1,143 customers were affected by the outage, according to Eversource’s outage map. The figure represents about 13.3% of Eversource’s customers in New Canaan, and was down from the 1,586 total at 8:30 a.m. (18.4%).
Weed Street was blocked to motor vehicle traffic between Richmond Hill and Frogtown Roads until power was restored, police said.
