Over 30 Percent of Weston Still in the Dark
As of last night, NSTAR had shrunk the number of customers still without power, but a large portion of the town remains in a blackout.
Much of Weston is still without power four days after the devastating hurricane that tore through the east.
According to an NSTAR outage map last night, 38 percent of Weston NSTAR customers are still without power due to damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. This percentage represents about 1,654 customers out of 4,305.
The most recent estimate put out by NSTAR yesterday maintains power will return to the town by tonight, but there are several areas in town with downed power lines.
School was once again canceled yesterday and numerous roads are still closed. Town Manager Donna VanderClock has kept an updated list on the town’s website since Tuesday.
Weston has the highest percentage of NSTAR customers without power for the longest amount of time following Hurricane Sandy as compared to all other Massachusetts communities. There were over 100 incidents of downed trees and wires reported throughout Weston on Monday.
The Library, Town Hall and Council on Aging are open to the public for phone charging and rest, according to the town’s website.
