Monson police confirmed that the tree and wires fell on the road near the intersection of Stebbins Road and Upper Palmer Road at about 5:15 p.m., forcing police to close the roadway while National Grid crews responded to make repairs.
As of 6 p.m., 521 National Grid customers were without power in Monson, while 1,198 customers were without power in Wilbraham.
