Hermine may be a post-tropical storm that's falling apart, but its winds still packed a punch on Tuesday morning.
Branches and trees came down in spots along the shoreline.
Crews responded to Cromwell Place and Willard Avenue Extension in Old Saybrook where repairs were needed on snapped poles.
A tree came down on two utility poles.
Officials said the two roads will be closed through mid-morning.
Power was cut to a number of buildings in the area. According to Eversource, about 180 customers were without power as of 6:30 a.m.
In New London, officials said the wind toppled over a tree on Reyburn Street, brought down branches on Hillside Avenue and caused the lights to flicker on Ocean Avenue.
State police warned drivers to be aware of debris that may be across roads. They posted a photo of a branch across Route 68 in Prospect.
