Downed Power Lines Snarl Falmouth Traffic on Route 28, 1,200 Still Without Power

PowerlinesFALMOUTH – Heavy rains, high winds, thunder and lightning have left some residents without power this morning.

Outages remain in Falmouth, with nearly 1,200 homes still in the dark as of 10 am. Eversource spokeswoman Rhiannon D’Angelo says those outages are caused by a number of downed trees and power lines. She added that crews hope to restore power to all residents by noon today.

Crews are working to clear downed power lines on Route 28 at the intersection of Thomas Landers Road. Falmouth police say that work should last throughout the morning and are asking motorists to find alternate routes.

At the height of the storm, about 8,600 Eversource customers were without power.

The storms brought down wires and trees across the region last night, and forced the closure of Route 28 in Hyannis from the rotary to Yarmouth Road. A 62-mile-per-hour wind gust was reported at Barnstable Municipal Airport.

A tornado warning was issued in Plymouth County last night.
