National Grid investigating possible electrical shortage in Albany
ALBANY, N.Y. - Power has been restored for hundreds of Albany residents after an apparent electrical shortage underground knocked out electricity Monday, but thousands more are still without.
Authorities responded to reports of a manhole explosion in the area of Central Avenue and Partridge Street Monday night. Firefighters say an investigation revealed the manhole didn't explode, but there was some smoke in the area, indicating a possible electrical shortage.
At one point, over 2,000 customers in the area were without power. Crews are still working to restore power for those customers affected.
National Grid was called to investigate. They're still working to determine exactly what happened.
