SEYMOUR, Conn. (WTNH)– A downed tree left over a thousand people without power in Seymour Monday morning.
Police say they believe it was the wind that took down a tree, which subsequently downed wires on South Main Street. Traffic is being diverted from the area, as South Main Street is now closed in the area of Pearl Street.
Road will be closed until tree is removed and damage to pole and wires are repaired. Please use Maple St and Pearl St for alternate route.

Police ask drivers to use Maple Street and Pearl Street for an alternative route.
Crews are working to remove the tree and repair the damaged pole and wires. There is no word on when the road is expected to reopen.
The wind also closed a road in Brooklyn earlier Monday. Route 21 was closed due to utility wires that were down on the road.
