Power was restored in Brookfield early this morning after trees fell on wires, knocking out electricity during last night's storm. About a thousand outages, 12-percent of Brookfield, were reported by Eversource Energy during the height of the storm.
Brookfield Police say the 911 system was flooded with emergency calls for both Police and Fire personnel. Firefighters were able to quickly assemble and staffed apparatus at Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company and Candlewood Company. They handle calls for service including alarms, trees on wires and wires down.
Brookfield Public Works cleared downed trees, fallen limbs and other debris from the roadways. There were closures reported on Huckleberry Hill Road in the area of YMCA, Stony Hill Road between Pocono Ridge Road and Grays Bridge Road, Route 133 east of North and South Obtuse, North Obtuse at Route 133 and North Beech Tree Road.
