Somerville and Brookline Village lose power

Several thousand customers across Somerville lost their power - and air conditioning - starting around 1 p.m., in an outage that also extended to part of East Arlington and which may not be fully fixed until after 8 p.m., Eversource reports on its outage map.

The town of Brookline reports around 430 customers in Brookline Village lost power around 12:30 p.m. and that Eversource is giving an estimated full restoration time of 5 p.m. In a statement, Town Administrator Mel Kleckner said:

We have been in contact with Eversource since the outages were first reported and they understand the need to act quickly given today’s extremely hot temperatures

Still got power in winter hill…

I live in Somerville on Highland Ave., not far from City Hall. Our power "flickered" at least 2-4 times between noon and 1, then went off for some time after 1. Fortunately, it came back around 2ish, but I closed all the curtains and took a nap anyway, figuring if the power crapped out again, maybe I could sleep through it. Woke up to the storm, and am now wondering how much rain we got; also, crossing fingers that power stays on.
