As of 2:00 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 8, power has been restored to all but 235 residents (17.4%). Eversource will be addressing all remaining outages.
Two roads remain closed – Cove Road and Sterling City Road. Sterling City Road is in the process of tree/wire removal. Cove Road has a dangerous situation with a large tree soon to fall onto wires. A crane is needed to remove the tree and may not arrive in time. Be extremely careful where the road is marked and do not attempt to drive below the tree.
The town crew will be addressing the debris that still exists along roadsides. The amount of debris we experienced will take time to remove and will be completed as quickly as possible.
If you do not have power, make sure to advise Eversource by phone or online as you may have issues with lines running from the street to your home.
