Power Back — Slowly — in Bristol and Warren

By about 9:30 am Sunday, about 3,000 outages had been resolved with more than 13,000 left, according to National Grid.


National Grid crews made some progress toward restoring electrical power to customers in Bristol and Warren on Sunday morning, reporting that about 3,000 out of 16,000 households had been brought back online.

Almost all of Warren, including Touisset, and most of Bristol still remained without power, and National Grid estimated that it may be Monday night before electricity is completely restored to both towns.

Sunday's forecast is for sun and light winds with temperatures around 33, clear with lows in the 20s overnight, then warming up to the upper 40s on Monday.


How long have you gone without electricity? When did your power come back on? What did you do in the meantime to cope with the loss of electricity?

Are we in a third world nation. This is the fourth time that I have been without power for multiple days. Is there an option?

National Grid is not putting any preventive maintenance into the grid. It falls apart during any storm these days. Bristol or most of it had power during the 78 storm when more than twice as much snow fell here,

Small home Generators are a necessary when your dealing with a global company. With 400 crews working in this state, power should be back to 90% of the state. It should be disturbing that Foster-Glocester got their power back very early in the restoration effort. There must have been a lot of line work in those towns after the last storm. This is where the local politicians need to be applying pressure on these utilities to do their maintenance on these outdate distribution lines.
