National Grid Tells Chelmsford to Expect "Multi-Day Event"
In a conference call this morning, Chelmsford town manager Paul Cohen says the main focus of the utility will be clearing roads and restoring power to key areas.
After conferring with National Grid local officials this morning, Chelmsford town manager Paul Cohen reports that the utility is bracing for a "multi-day event" here in town, with approximately 2,500 homes still without power.
Cohen says that by the end of the day, all debris and fallen power lineswill be removed from roads, allowing Halloween to be celebrated on schedule.
This will likely be followed by critical community buildings such as schools and public safety centers that may not have power in and near Chelmsford will be first in line, hopefully allowing Chelmsford students to return to school on Wednesday.
After power is restored to these areas, he indicated that areas with large sections of homes without power will be targeted next until all homes have their power restored.
We will provide updates on estimated times of power restoration as they become available.
