Blown Transformer Shuts Down Hollis Street

A blown transformer has plunged much of downtown Holliston back into darkness. Lights went out around 8:35 pm. The transformer was located near 122 Hollis Street and that street has now been closed to traffic. The explosion knocked out power into East Holliston. Eversource had reported earlier in the day that 31% of the town was without power. That percentage has jumped back up to 46%. The police station is operating on back-up generators.

These storm related power outages are not the fault of Eversource. But the blown transformers are. It's like 10,00 extension cords plugged into one outlet. I had eleven outages last year and two already this year, all of them not storm related.

I knew I'd find the reason here. Thanks!
