NSTAR Release:

Hurricane Sandy severely impacted NSTAR’s system, causing widespread damage and power outages. Crews will be working day and night to restore power as quickly and as safely as possible.

Along with our 3,000 employees, we have about 1,200 contracted workers from as far away as Texas, the Midwest and Washington State in place across our service area. Since last night, NSTAR has cut the number of customers without power in half, and we’ve restored power to over 243,000 customers since the start of the storm. 

NSTAR customers should be prepared for prolonged power outages resulting from Hurricane Sandy. We encourage customers whose electric service is affected by the storm to report it by using our "Report an Outage" tool or by calling us at 800-592-2000.

You can find complete, up-to-date outage information by town on our new outage map. A list of customers without power by town is also available.

All customers are also urged to check with local communities about their plans for opening shelters. Shelter information is also available by calling 211 or visiting the American Red Cross' web site.
