Good morning Marlborough Residents -
A quick update relating to storm activity and power restoration efforts in the last 12 hours:
Collaboration and preparation for the storm began yesterday with close communication between my team, the First Selectman, Fire, EMS, Public Safety, MES and Department of Public Works. As a result, the collective team, in partnership with Eversource, were able to react almost immediately after loss of power began early this morning.
The town Emergency Operations Center was activated early this morning, and began communications with State, Eversource and appropriate Town of Marlborough agencies. At our worst period, approximately 80% of the town was without power. We are currently at approximately 28% without power. Eversource restored power to critical infrastructure first, and is now working a few isolated outage areas that impact the most residents and businesses. In addition to that work, we are aware of several small areas and individual residences that will need attention. Eversource is actively contacting those customers, and has crews in town working at this time.
Thank you to our Fire, EMS, Public Safety, Public Works and other town staff who have been up all night helping to address needs as they unfolded.
Please be sure to monitor the Eversource Outage map and to contact Eversource directly if you are still encountering issues with your service.
As always, if there is an emergency, danger to life or property, please dial 911.
