PHOTO: Tree vs. pole on Shelton road
A Shelton resident provided this photo of a tree falling on a telephone pole on Mill Street on April 4, which caused a limited power outage lasting almost an hour. Strong winds impacted the entire region that day.
A United Illuminating crew was called to pull the tree off the wire and reset a blown fuse. The road was closed for awhile due to the emergency utility work.
Mill Street runs between Bridgeport Avenue and Buddington Road, near the Far Mill River.
