NStar Utilities is rallying ahead of the impending Nor'Easter.

NStar spokesman Mike Durand tells WBSM News company workers and others are already en route to strategic locations, ready to tackle problems caused by the storm.

Heavy snowfall and sheering winds are sure to wreak havoc on power lines, causing scattered outages.

Durand recommends families put together emergency kits with battery-operated flashlights and radios, first aid supplies, non-perishable foods, bottled water, and other necessities.
