Eversource Ready for Possible Power Outages

HYANNIS – Eversource says that they have crews ready to go if there is any reported power outages throughout the Cape as a result of today’s storm.

The snowfall dumped onto the region on Friday resulted in no power outages, but with high winds in the forecast for today, that could change.

Eversource spokesman Mike Durand said that the maintenance and equipment upgrades that they have done throughout the year have prepared them for storms like this. 

“We will have extra crews because you certainly need the staff to make the repairs, but some of things that we have done over the year and the years have really helped us in terms of responding to power outages caused by this type of weather,” said Durand. 

Nonetheless, Durand said that they will be ready for anything that comes their way.

“Based on the volume of snow that they are calling for and the winds that we could see, we’ve made the decision to increase the number of line crews and support staff that we have in our service area, particularly on the Cape, the South Shore and in our south coast service areas,” said Durand. 

Anyone without power today can contact Eversource online or call their outage line at 1-800-592-2000.
