FOXBORO (CBS) – Several thousand people were without power Sunday morning in Massachusetts as snow and freezing rain move through the region.

As of 7 a.m., National Grid reported 1,914 people without electricity. The majority of impacted customers were in Norfolk.

Eversource said 817 customers had no power. The majority of those customers were in New Bedford. Some outages were reported in Quincy as well.

Foxboro Police said there were customers in the west end of town along Route 140 who are in the dark. The outage stretched from Dunkin’ on Main Street into Wrentham. National Grid was notified.

Though the storm is not expected to feature high winds, there will be a risk of more power outages throughout the day due to the weight of snow and ice on limbs and lines.

In advance of the storm some Patriots fans wanted to make sure potential power outages didn’t impact their viewing of the AFC Championship Game. Some fans headed to Home Depot to grab generators just in case.

“I’m worried about missing the game,” said Bill Childs. “I’m hooking up a generator so if it happens we’re good.”
