Chief Fitzgerald has been in communication with representatives from National Grid throughout the morning in regards to the ongoing power outages in town. Main trunk lines in Beverly that feed much of the affected areas in Manchester are currently being repaired to hopefully restore power fully. National Grid has pulled additional manpower from upstate New York to assist in this area, as Cape Ann is one of the hardest hit and most affected areas of the state. The latest estimates from National Grid are that they are hoping to restore power sometime this evening. If this does not happen, the town is currently working on a contingency plan in regards to a possible overnight shelter for those who are still affected by power loss. Please stay tuned and we will have further updates as soon as they are available. We ask residents to please refrain from calling the station to report an outage or to ask for an update.
