For some Southborough residents, Easter dinner preparations were disrupted by power outages. Several of you wrote in to say you lost power at least once on Sunday.
According to National Grid, the main blackout was caused by an underground cable fault in Westborough that tripped the breakers in the Southborough substation shortly before 1:00 pm on Sunday. The average outage lasted about 90 minutes. There were also two brief outages — 5 to 7 minutes each — at 5:07 pm and 11:12 pm (at the height of the Red Sox game – gasp!) that were required to get everything fixed.
No word on how many customers — or Easter hams — were impacted.
