Dozens Without Power in Binghamton
New York State Electric and Gas is reporting 77 customers in the City of Binghamton without power to start March 28. The utility says it is “assessing” a restoration time.
The majority of the NYSEG customers were on the North Side in the area of Chenango Street, but power outages reportedly stretched to over a dozen customers on Court Street and the Chenango River Promenade.
Broome County Emergency Communications officials say it’s believed the problem is with the Noyes Island NYSEG Substation located on the banks of the Chenango River between Water Street and West State Street. They say a problem arose with the substation on March 27 but could not elaborate.
There’s no word on the nature of the problem with the substation, but authorities said they believed at least one traffic light on Chenango Street was out.
