Eversource, New Hampshire’s largest utility, issued a statement saying it is preparing for the first significant storm of the season by strategically pre-positioning crews and equipment across the state so they are ready, quickly and safely, for anyone to respond to storm-related failures.

“As with any potentially hazardous weather approaching our state, we’ve been tracking multiple forecasts and models this week — keeping a particularly close eye on the potential snow-rain line, as heavy, wet snow can damage trees and electrical.” system,” said Doug Foley, Eversource President of New Hampshire Operations. “We are securing additional contract crews and will have line, tree and service personnel armed and ready to respond to outages across the state as quickly and safely as possible. We encourage our customers to prepare ahead of time by stocking an assault kit and charging all devices, and also remind our customers that restorations may take longer as we ensure the safety of our staff who will respond in difficult road conditions.”

The storm begins with rain on Friday morning, then changes to snow in the afternoon and evening and lasts until Saturday.
