From National Grid

A National Grid field force of nearly 1,500 workers is active throughout the upstate region removing downed trees, tree limbs and other hazards, and safely restoring power to customers impacted by the ongoing heavy, wet snow and high winds. The treacherous weather conditions are expected to continue into Saturday morning, bringing the potential for further service interruptions across the company’s 25,000-square-mile upstate service area.

Power has successfully been restored to 50 percent of the more than 100,000 customers impacted by the storm. Hardest hit areas include the Southern Tier, the Mohawk Valley, and portions of Central New York and the Capital Region. Given the significant damage to equipment and trees in these areas, combined with new outages from the sustained storm, detailed restoration estimates will be provided once the storm subsides and a thorough damage assessment and analysis can be completed.

In the meantime, crews will continue to work around the clock to restore power as quickly and safely as possible in challenging conditions. The company’s first priority is to ensure the safety of our customers and our crews by clearing away dangers such as live, downed power lines.
