Portsmouth EMA is in close contact with our National Grid community liaison. National Grid reports that 326 customers are without power in Portsmouth this morning as of 7:00 AM. National Grid expects to have service restored to all customers in Portsmouth by Friday evening.
Power restoration crews are in short supply in Rhode Island and in all the states affected by Sandy. Hospitals and schools in Rhode Island’s South County are still without power. More crews will be reassigned to Portsmouth as the situation stabilizes in South County.
