The cause of the outage is in the Farmington Avenue, an Eversouce spokesperson said. The outage is not related to an outage earlier in the week when a boom lift took down wires.

Eversource crews were called to the scene to determine the issue. Crews will also be rerouting some of the power to hopefully get at least a portion of the outages restored shortly
no estimate yet for full repair
