Easton Fire Chief Kevin Partridge said residents without power may be looking at a few days in the dark.
"National Grid is at a phase five storm response and restoration of power could take up to 72 hours from the end of the storm which will be later today," he told Patch at 11:30 a.m. Saturday. "National Grid is not giving any specific timeline on when certain street will be restored."
The Emergency Management Team is opening a warming shelter at the Olmsted-Richardson school beginning at 1 p.m. for those who need it. Residents should call 508-230-3323 for information or transportation.
In the mean-time, residents need to be patient, Partridge said.
"Residents need to be patient and understand they could be several days without power," he said.
