Thousands of households across Massachusetts were without power Monday as fierce winds and rain pummeled much of the commonwealth.
As of 6:37 p.m. Monday afternoon, more than 125,000 customers were without power, according to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency’s website. Those numbers fluctuated greatly over the course of an hour and are expected to change.
The National Weather Service issued a high wind warning for the majority of the state, in effect until at least 7 p.m. Monday. The NWS warned that winds could reach up to 65 mph.
During a press conference Monday afternoon, Gov. Charlie Baker said the storm could especially impact Southeastern Massachusetts, including the Cape and Islands, and the Boston metro area.
