Original Story

Over 200 homes and buildings, including Cross Street Intermediate School, lost power Wednesday morning and utility workers are in Naugatuck to figure out what happened.

Connecticut Light & Power Spokesman Mitch Gross said the utility company was notified of the power failure at 8:25 a.m. and that employees are already on scene, in the vicinity of the Naugatuck substation, checking what went wrong.

According to the CL&P map, 224 customers are without power in the borough, comprising 1 percent of Naugatuck.

Superintendent John Tindall-Gibson confirmed that Cross Street Intermediate School lost power around 8:30 a.m., but school is going on as usual.

“We’re making accommodations as needed,” Tindall-Gibson said. “There are windows in every classroom and the building is comfortable at this time.”

Tindall-Gibson said the district is working with the Naugatuck Fire Department to make sure everything is in place in the building.
