Less than Five Easton Residents Without Power Thursday, National Grid Reports
Just about every Easton resident had power restored by Thursday afternoon, according to National Grid.
Three days after Hurricane Sandy swept through Easton, National Grid is reporting that less than five customers in Easton are still without power.
In all of Bristol County, 858 customers were without power as of Thursday afternoon.
The utility company said in a news release that it expects to have all power restored in the state by midnight Thursday night.
“We’re grateful to our local and state officials, with whom we worked before, during and after the storm to restore our customers as quickly and safely as possible,” said Marcy Reed, president, National Grid Massachusetts. “Every storm offers an opportunity for us to do better. While we do believe we improved our performance since last fall’s storms, we will continue to work in partnership with our communities to further enhance our preparedness, restoration and communications processes so that we can better serve our customers.”
Easton Town Administrator David Colton said the town was working with a National Grid liason throughout the storm. Outages in town peaked when over 3,000 residents were without power. The many outages and road closures canceled school for Easton students Monday and Tuesday.
