Hull Fire Chief Christopher Russo, who heads up the town's Emergency Management team, issued said an hour ago that National Grid crews were working to restore electricity to Hull, which lost power around 10:30 a.m.
Here is the National Grid update, which Russo posted on the Town of Hull Emergency Management page on Facebook:
Our crews are currently working on the repairs that we are hopeful will allow Hull Municipal Light to re-energize the town by midnight. We are making every effort to finish the work as soon and safe as possible.
At the same time, given the difficult weather and conditions and the complex repairs required, we do believe it would be prudent for you to consider a back-up plan if the outage extends past midnight.
We appreciate the close communications and collaboration with Town of Hull officials and look forward to seeing the lights back on in your town soon.
We take seriously our responsibility as the provider of electricity to the Hull Municipal Light Plant.
