NO School Monday

At noon today the town of Londonderry opened the Gym at the high school as a shelter limited to local Londonderry residents. This is a great place to get a shower if you need one. ALERT is providing assistance at the shelter with the help of both Londonderry Fire and Police.  If you are planing to stay overnight bring something like a sleeping bag, cots are provided.

If you need a bucket of water to flush your toilet, you can go to central fire station or the shelter. For those that don’t know a 5 gallon pail works great to flush when your well will not run.

February Wind Storm 2010
PSNH Outage Update #6 – 02/27/2010 5:00 a.m.

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Feb. 27, 2010 – Crews will be working through the day to restore service to PSNH customers who lost power in yesterday’s devastating wind storm. As of 5:00 a.m., PSNH reports that approximately 227,000 PSNH customers (46 percent) are without power, down from a peak of about 269,000 outages yesterday.

Although power outages are widespread throughout the state, the Seacoast and Southern regions of New Hampshire were hit hardest by this storm. Wind speeds above 60 mph were recorded in both regions, with gusts reaching 91 mph in Portsmouth, NH.

PSNH currently has about 365 line and tree-trimming crews working to assess damage, clear debris, and restore power. Crews arrived Friday from PSNH’s sister utility, Connecticut Light & Power, as well as multiple contractors.

An additional 230 crews will be arriving from Maryland, Michigan, and Pennsylvania during the day today.
Important Safety Notices

Given the number of outages and road closures, the amount of tree and branch debris that must be cleared before power can be restored, and PSNH’s ongoing assessment of the damage, customers are asked to prepare for what will be a multi-day power restoration effort. For information on shelters and other assistance, customers are encouraged to call 211.

Customers should be extremely cautious around downed power lines and/or damaged electrical equipment. Always assume downed wires are energized, even if they appear to be “dead,” and notify PSNH of their location immediately at 1-800-662-7764. PSNH is making it a priority to clear downed wires so that debris removal can proceed.

PSNH reminds customers that it is critical for their safety and the safety of line workers repairing the electrical system that portable generators be installed correctly. Generators must be properly ventilated to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, and should never be refueled while in operation.

To protect line workers, a generator should only be attached to the house wiring and be completely isolated from the utility supply. Without proper isolation, power that is being generated through the home could also feed into the PSNH electrical system and possibly electrocute a neighbor or a utility worker. Please take care when installing a portable generator. For more generator safety tips, visit www.psnh.com/Residential/SafetyCenter/Generators.asp.
Power Restoration Priorities

The first priority for PSNH is to restore power to customers in emergency situations. This typically includes hospitals, nursing homes, police and fire stations, and customers on life-support systems. Major circuits and lines serving the largest concentrations of people are repaired next. Once the major lines are repaired, lines feeding off of these circuits can be repaired.
