The majority of the NYSEG customers were on the North Side in the area of Chenango Street, but power outages reportedly stretched to over a dozen customers on Court Street and the Chenango River Promenade.  

Broome County Emergency Communications officials say it’s believed the problem is with the Noyes Island NYSEG Substation located on the banks of the Chenango River between Water Street and West State Street. They say a problem arose with the substation on March 27 but could not elaborate.
