Storm Recovery Update for Monday, August 10, 2020
Eversource was able to supply tree and line crews to work with our highway department most of the day on Sunday. They were able clear the trees and wires from all remaining closed roads, although some are still one-lane. Drivers are advised to avoid Wolfpits in particular, as cleanup
work continues there.
I will provide an update on current restoration numbers later in the day.
