GOUVERNEUR, New York (WWNY) - Thousands of people lost power in St. Lawrence County Wednesday.

A National Grid spokesperson said around 6:40 p.m. about 4,600 customers lost power after an equipment failure at a substation in Gouverneur.

As of 10:30 p.m. there were 3,321 customers still without power.

Power was restored for about 850 people by switching and rerouting service on National Grid’s system.

The spokesperson, however, said bad weather was delaying repairs and crews on the scene were waiting for conditions to improve to do more work.

He said power would be restored sometime in the overnight hours.

Most recently National Grid’s website said power would be restored by 2:00 a.m.

Gouverneur Mayor Ron McDougall said fire and police departments were helping with traffic during the outage.
