HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Crews said they expected to be on the scene of a fallen tree in Hartford for most of the day.

It closed the intersection of Love Lane and Coventry Street on Monday.

Eversource said said they expected it to take awhile to clear.

It brought down power lines in the area.

As of 8:50 a.m., Eversource estimated that power would be restored within 30 minutes.

There's no word on what caused the tree to fall.
