High Winds Knock Out Power To Thousands in N.H.

Nov 24, 2013

More than 32,000 customers lost power Sunday as a cold front brought high winds to the state.

PSNH reported that more than 20,000 customers were still without power as of late Sunday afternoon. More than 8,300 customers of New Hampshire Electric Coop and 4,000 Unitil customers were also without power.

High winds also took down a Comcast line, blocking both northbound and southbound lanes of I-93, between Exits 15 and 16 in Concord. New Hampshire State police reported the highway was closed shortly after 2 p.m.  in Concord. 

The National Weather Service said wind advisories would continue across the region into evening before starting to subside late tonight.
