Fortunately Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irene has passed for the most part.  Unfortunately, as a result of the storm we have a number of issues we are contending with.  Numerous roads have been closed due to trees that have taken down wires and need the attention of NStar prior to us being able to remove the debris.  All trees that did not affect wires have already been removed by the Department of Public Works and Police.

With continued power outages for an undetermined time many residents have lost phone communication either via landline or cellular phone we suggest the use of a car charger to replenish your cellular battery.

There remain a number of conditions where trees remain in a precarious position and with the continued wind we are unsure of changing circumstances.

We are attempting to forewarn motorists within our abilities to hazardous conditions that lie ahead.  Having said that, please use extreme caution for the foreseeable future when traversing the roadways in your vehicles.  Pedestrians are encouraged to avoid walking the area at this point, particularly in the dark as unknown hazards are prevalent.

NStar is well aware of the obstructions we are dealing with and are making every effort to assist but we are uncertain as to any time frames.  If you have a particular issue with your residence regarding power NStar requests you contact them at (800) 592-2000 so they can account for your needs as they can.  Please refrain from contacting the police department regarding power issues unless an emergency necessitates doing so.  NStar does not communicate timelines to 

AS OF 09/03/2011 AT 12:00PM ALL MAJOR AND SECONDARY COMMUTING ROADS ARE OPEN!!!    THERE ARE STILL A COUPLE OF SIDE STREETS THAT HAVE ISSUES.  N-STAR IS AWARE OF THESE AND IS ACTIVELY WORKING TO CLEAR THE PROBLEM STREETS.

 

 Respectfully,

 Sudbury Police Department
