Mass. & N.H. Declare States Of Emergency

Power Lines Down, Roads Impassable From Downed Trees & Flooding
WORCESTER (WBZ) ― An ice storm that caused widespread power outages, road closures and school closings prompted Governors Deval Patrick and John Lynch to declare States of Emergency for Massachusetts and New Hampshire respectively.

The move clears the way to mobilize the National Guard to
help local communities with their storm recovery efforts.

POWER OUTAGES

Governor Deval Patrick said at least 350,000 homes and businesses in Massachusetts were without power, and he said it could be days before crews could even begin reconnecting lines. The first step was to safely clear the debris laying across power lines.

"This is not going to be a couple of hours," Patrick said. "It's likely to be several days." He said Monday was an ambitious deadline.

Patrick urged people to call 211 if they needed help finding shelter.

In New Hampshire, at least 320,000 PSNH customers were without power –more than half of the state's customers.

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.
