SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A power outage is affecting some residents in Springfield Friday morning.

Eversource spokesperson Priscilla Ress told 22News crews are working to make repairs on Magazine Street. She said it appears to be an underground cable failure.

According to the outage map, 86 customers are still without power in Springfield. 

Eversource restored power to 560 customers in an hour.  Just before noon, Ress estimated the remaining customers would have their power restored within the next two hours.

“We’re working diligently to locate the failure, and in the meantime restore power to as many customers as possible,” Ress said.
