Update: According to Marlborough Fire Chief James Fortin the number of people without power in the city is 3,300 out of 18,000 National Grid customers. This is down from the morning number of 4,500.
“National Grid has been here working with us in the operations center and we are getting a good handle on the storm," said Chief Fortin who explained the number has been reduced since even 10 a.m.
National Grid did not have estimates on when power would be restored.
“We have several lines and tree crews in the area that are making damage assessments and trying to restore power," said Charlotte McCormack, Spokesperson for National Grid.
According to the National Grid Power Outage Map, just over 1,600 customers are without power shortly before noon on Tuesday.
Hurricane Sandy rocked the coastline but also had an impact in Marlborough with scattered outages. According to fire officials, electrical issues still remain in the city.
Power outages last night had to wait until the gusting winds had died down before lines could be repaired, said officials. Many people made it through the night with only periods of power loss, or flickering lights.
