Power restored to 800 NYSEG customers following transformer explosion

OXFORD – Homes and businesses along the Route 12 corridor between Oxford and Norwich were without power for much of the night and into the morning hours.

According to Emergency Management Officer A. Wesley Jones, the outage was caused by a transformer explosion which occured at approximately 11:25 p.m. on County Road 32 just south of the Half Way House Bridge.

“Initially the power was out from the south end of Norwich to Oxford, and into Preston,” Jones reported. The Chenango County Public Safety Building, the New York State Veterans’ Home in Oxford and Walmart are all located in the area affected by the outage.
