Monday's storms knocked out power and caused several road closures across several communities in western Massachusetts.
Those towns included Granville, Springfield, Longmeadow and Deerfield. At one point in the day, over 700 Eversource customers were without power, but now as of 6 p.m. that number has dropped to 111.
In Holland, police have reopened Mashapaug Road between Sand Hill Road and Sturbridge Road, [4 corners] after it was closed to through traffic due to a tree being removed from live electrical wires.
Over in Granville, police and fire crews are on scene of multiple sections of primary wires down in the area of 815 Main Road. Drivers are currently being being detoured at Blandford and Reagan Road.
Eversource representative, Priscilla Ress tells us it was a car versus pole accident and it caused a fire and wires to come down onto the vehicle.
Luckily, everyone did make it out of the vehicle, we're told by police and no injuries have been reported. However, power had to be cut and wires need to be removed, Ress says.
Ress adds that area needs to be made safe first before they can start switching the electricity around the damaged area and restore electricity to customers.
And Western Mass News also spotted several other scattered power outages across the region this afternoon. The largest was is in Springfield with 404 Eversource customers without power according to the Eversource Outage Map. Following that was 242 Eversource customers in Longmeadow. This was for about a half hour to 45 minutes we noticed.
