Eversource line and tree crews, working non-stop alongside hundreds of out-of-state utility workers from as far as Florida, Arizona, and Louisiana, continue working to restore power to hundreds-of-thousands of customers following yesterday’s latest round of severe weather.
After a major winter storm that brought blizzard conditions, high winds and snow to New Bedford on Tuesday, City crews have made significant progress in removing snow from the City’s roads, and their work will continue throughout the night.
As blizzard conditions knocked out power to about a quarter million Massachusetts homes and businesses Tuesday, power crews were kept out of bucket trucks and away from power lines by heavy snow and high winds. One utility says it could be days until power is fully restored.
Everything you need to know in the City of New Bedford ahead of the major winter storm about to hit the SouthCoast, including parking ban info, closings, trash/recycling pickup schedules, and free sand pickup locations.
