EASTON — Fire Chief Kevin Partridge reports that National Grid is currently working to repair a transmission line due to Friday’s high winds and heavy rains.
According to National Grid’s Massachusetts Power Outage Map, hundreds of Easton residents have been dealing with power outages since approximately 3:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, as a result of the adverse weather conditions.
The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for Easton and all of Bristol County until approximately 9:30 p.m. Friday, with wind gusts reaching as high as 50 miles per hour during the afternoon and early evening.
Chief Partridge hopes that the majority of Easton residents will have their power restored sometime Friday evening, although some may be without power until Saturday morning.
“Residents should call National Grid at 800-465-1212 to report power outages in their home or neighborhood, and should always avoid coming into contact with downed power lines,” Chief Partridge said. “We ask that residents be patient while crews work to restore outages throughout the town and surrounding area.”
