• Power still out in Quincy, second shelter opened


    QUINCY, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- The city of Quincy remained without power Saturday morning.

    Mayor Thomas Koch told Fox 25 News that a major transmission line that feeds the city was down. Koch said that they would not be able to repair the line until a helicopter could fly to assess the situation.

    "That's what concerns me the most right now," said Koch. "Plowing we can get to but we need to get the power on for people."

    Koch said that in addition to the shelter at Quincy High School, North Quincy High School would also be opened for people seeking shelter.

    "We will go and pick (people) up and bring them to the shelter," said Koch.

    The city lost power late Friday night. Quincy police told Fox 25 that the police department was running on generator power. The city's 911 system was not affected.
