Power Back On After Early Morning Outage


On the hottest night in Western Massachusetts so far, one part of Springfield lacked the hum of air conditioners.

More than a thousand customers lost power overnight in the Six Corners section of Springfield.  According to Western Massachusetts Electric Company, about 2,600 people were in the dark as of midnight. Power was restored by 1:00 a.m. WMECO tells us that there was an issue with underground cables. Most of the affected homes were in the area of Hancock and Alden Streets and Eastern Avenue. Other outages are reported in Colrain, Hadley, Montague, Southwick, and West Springfield.
