Police are searching for a man who took an axe to a tree clearing machine, causing $5,000 in damages.
N-Star says the power outage that plunged the Back Bay into darkness in March was caused by mechanical failure. The utility has filed a report on the incident, saying oil from a transformer sparked a fire on a high voltage cable at the Scotia Street substation.
The lights are back on in the Back Bay, but Mayor Tom Menino is still unhappy with NStar.
A power outage affected parts of Boston’s Back Bay for a short time on Tuesday afternoon.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino says NStar’s charitable foundation has donated $10,000 to help low and fixed income people who lost food during a power outage last week.
The outage is so the company can switch the customers from a temporary connection, to the company’s permanent underground network.
The Inspectional Services Department is sending crews out to check up on affected stores and restaurants.
More than 50,000 people in Massachusetts still do not have power after last weekend’s Nor’easter.
One man has come up with a creative, and possibly dangerous, way to help out his neighbors who are suffering in the power outage.
Why don’t the power companies put lines underground? – Scott, Graniteville (Westford)
