State's Largest Utility Works To Restore Power
Public Service of New Hampshire is ramping up their efforts to restore power to hundreds of thousands of homes.
PSNH’s President Gary Long says that the storm knocked out more major power lines than any storm in the utility’s history.
Over the past two days crews have restored most of these lines, and now expect that power restoration to individual homes will accelerate.
Long: This snowstorm did more damage for this kind of event than we’ve ever seen by some reports in 140 years.
PSNH says that it has been difficult find crews to help restore power, because the storm hit such a large portion of New England.
However, workers coming from Tennessee, Ohio and elsewhere will more than double the number of line crews on hand to help restore power.
