Some Power Losses, Other Damage from Storm

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Trees and utility wires fell, some roads flooded and thousands lost power across Connecticut as the remnants of a tropical storm hit New England. No major injuries have been reported.

The National Weather Service says Friday’s heaviest rains have moved out of Connecticut and it’s canceled flash flood warnings for coastal counties. A flood warning remains in effect for Litchfield County.

The Weather Service has also canceled wind advisories.

Connecticut Light & Power says it’s restored power to 80,000 customers since Thursday and about 1,200 outages remained late Friday. United Illuminating reports 370 outages.

New Haven police say Union Avenue near the train station was closed because of a sinkhole. Two schools in Milford closed early because of power outages.
