RAIN, HURRICANE-FORCE WINDS KNOCK OUT POWER FROM NEW YORK TO MAINE
by Sharon Rondeau
The storm was termed a “cyclone” by some sources and was actually a combination of two storms: Hurricane Philippe and another system.
But the worst part was and still is the loss of electricity which persists in parts of southern, mid- and northern New England, as is the case with your editor.
About half the town has power, while the other half does not. Fortunately, the library has power and wi-fi.
A generator is good, but full power is better. With a large tree still sitting on a power line in the immediate vicinity to this writer, it is unclear as to when electricity will be restored.
For anyone in the affected areas, please let us know how you fared.
