NEW CASTLE — Nearly 1,300 customers in the Croton Avenue area were without electricity Sunday morning.

Chuck Jackson, Penn Power area manager, said one of the circuits in the Ray Street substation tripped after a tree limb fell on a line near Vine and Countyline streets about 10:30 a.m.

Power was restored to the 1,277 customers at noon, he said.
