HAMPDEN, MA (WSHM) -

A power outage that affected over 4,000 customers in Hampden County on Wednesday evening has been resolved.

A spokesperson for National Grid told CBS 3 that power had been restored to the entire town of Hampden, as well as parts of East Longmeadow and Monson, by 9 p.m.

That is roughly one hour after the outage was reported.

While National Grid is not certain on the cause of the outage, they suspect it involved strong winds and trees taking out the power.
