From Eversource MA (verbatim):

Despite the challenge continued high winds create, our crews are there when you need us - working hard to access damage, help the communities we serve clear blocked roads and safely restoring power to impacted customers.

Eversource expects customers in Boston and its surrounding communities to be substantially restored by 11:59 p.m. Thursday night. Customers in New Bedford and the South Coast, as well as Martha's Vineyard, should also be substantially restored Thursday night.

Communities in Western Massachusetts should be substantially restored by 8 p.m. on Friday. The MetroWest communities will be substantially restored by 11:59 p.m. Friday.

Communities on the South Shore (including Plymouth) and Cape Cod should be substantially restored by 8 p.m. on Saturday.

Please note, most customers in these areas will be restored more quickly.

Eversource will continue moving crews to the areas most heavily damaged by the storm, and mutual aid crews from other states are en route to New England to assist in restoration efforts.

Remember - always treat any downed wires as though they are live, stay as far away as possible and report them immediately to 9-1-1.
