Gov. Lynch Assesses Damage In Bedford
Governor John Lynch toured the damage to New Hampshire in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. When the governor arrived at the Bedford Operations Center late Tuesday afternoon, he learned that most of the damage in the area had already been cleaned up.
Bedford's municipal buildings and traffic lights were spared any serious damage, though around 2,000 PSNH customers are still without power. Crews from as far as Texas are helping restore service there.
Lynch praised the efforts of the emergency responders and cited the use of new media in getting the word out about the storm:
"Technology has played a huge role. What we see here didn't exist eight years ago. So the fact that communities can look and see what's on the state's EOC website is critical."
The governor also toured storm damage in Hampton and Dover earlier in the day.
