REGION (WGGB) — The storms and wind have moved through western Massachusetts, leaving a little more than 400 customers across the four western Mass. counties without power currently.

As of 2:00 a.m. Tuesday, Western Mass. Electric was reporting 399 customers without power. Some of the communities with the highest amounts of customers in the dark include Shelburne (82 outages) and Greenfield (107 outages).

National Grid is reporting 38 outages across Berkshire and Franklin Counties.

Around 6:00 p.m. today was when the height of the power outages occurred.  At that time the two electric companies were reporting about 6,400 people had lost electricity.  That number has now diminished and more than 4,750 customers have had their power returned.

Crews are continuing to work across the area until all power is restored.   A number of power lines were damaged by downed trees or branches when the wind and rain kicked up earlier.
