MARSHFIELD, Mass. - Thousands are still in the dark after last week’s powerful nor’easter, and crews have been racing to make repairs and restore power before the next storm later this week.
It hasn’t even been 24 hours since power was restored in Marshfield, and thousands are still in the dark in neighboring towns.
Sky25 flew over the South Shore Monday. The damage is widespread and the challenge for utility crews have been massive trees that are down and took wires down with them.
Also, crews are having to fix snapped utility poles.
Extra help was called in from around the country and Canada just as the next storm gets ready to impact our weather Wednesday.
“Crews are challenged with the trees that are down, power lines that are down and broken poles,” Michael McCallan, of National Grid, said.
Luckily the winds is not expected to be as strong as we experienced last week.
