NYSEG Busy With Power Outages
New York State Electric and Gas crews have been busy taking care of widespread power interruptions in the Southern Tier, Finger Lakes and Central New York after a fast-moving storm swept through overnight 4/9-4/10.
At 3:30 a.m., close to 3,300 customers on the South Side of the City of Binghamton, Town of Binghamton and Town of Conklin were without power. Emergency services officials said they believed a tree branch fell on a ‘bus’ in a NYSEG substation.
An hour later, the lights went out for a second in Downtown Binghamton but the area north of Interstate 81 in Johnson City lost power. About 2,600 customers there were in the dark for about an hour and a half.
A few customers in Kirkwood and Windsor also had service interruptions.
NYSEG reported all of Broome County was back on-line before 8 a.m. but Stuben, Livingston, Putnam and Wyoming Counties were still out.
