Municipal and National Grid crews are working together through some challenging conditions to get services restored as soon as possible. Throughout the area there is still widespread flooding, downed trees, and impassable roads.

Please be careful if you’re out and about today. If you come across any downed power lines, assume they are carrying live electricity and do not touch. Report anything you see to 311 or National Grid.
