Update from National Grid on power restoration

I just received an update from National Grid; They currently have 20 crews working on broken poles, downed wires and power outages in Tyngsborough, Westford & Chelmsford. They are bringing in additional help and expect to have a total of 40 crews by 1pm today. Although they cannot guarantee a restoration time, they are hopeful that they will have power restored for Tyngsborough and surrounding communities by 11 pm tonight.  In addition to the Scribner Road area, we are aware of other pockets of power outages. They are likely the result of downed power lines in surrounding communities. We will have a continual police presence in the Scribner area while the power remains out.

Please be safe, Chief Howe
