PLYMOUTH, NH (9 A.M.) – After a productive overnight, NHEC and contract line crews have restored power to another 5,000 members. Just under 2,400 members remain without power at the time of this update, down from a peak of 16,000 at noon yesterday.

Work is continuing today and will focus on the Raymond area and the Lakes Region, where nearly all remaining outages are located. We expect to be fully restored by tonight, with the exception of locations that are still inaccessible or require further repair by the property owner.

Please be safe in areas with recent line and tree work – don’t go near a downed wire, or a fallen tree that’s in contact with one! Report unsafe electrical conditions: 1.800.343.6432.
