More than 1,000 residents lost power on Monday afternoon after a tree limb fell on power lines in West Falmouth.

“Just over 1,000 customers were interrupted, but due to remote switching capabilities we installed last year, almost 500 of those initial 1,000 customers had power restored within five minutes,” Eversource media relations manager Reid Lamberty said.

The remaining 500 customers had their power restored in approximately one hour.
