Fewer than 20,000 Massachusetts electric customers are without power days after superstorm Sandy struck the state.
Electricity should be restored to most New Hampshire residents without power by Friday, according to the state’s emergency management office.
More than 70,000 customers are still without power two days after Hurricane Sandy hit Massachusetts. That’s down from just under 400,000.
There are still more than 36,000 customers without power in Massachusetts as of Wednesday afternoon.
Gov. Deval Patrick says Massachusetts was fortunate to escape Hurricane Sandy with no major devastation, injuries or deaths.
The last time a major storm rolled through town, trees toppled power lines and it took days for NStar to restore power to hundreds of customers.
Here are the latest power outages in Massachusetts and New Hampshire from Hurricane Sandy.
The Massachusetts attorney general is seeking nearly $10 million in fines from NStar for what she calls “inadequate” responses to two major storms last year.
Shortly after power was restored to customers in the Back Bay, a manhole explosion knocked power out again.
Authorities say if you don’t have a reason to be in the Back Bay Wednesday, then stay away.
