Overnight power outage reported on HWS campus

There was an overnight power outage at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

An email obtained by FingerLakes1.com estimated that power would be restored by 4:15 a.m. As of 5 a.m. power was fully-restored in the area.

The email noted that the outage was due to a failed transformer on Pulteney Street.

Few students remain on campus at this time due to spring break and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

No additional information was immediately available.
