Power Nearly Restored in Medford
Sandy has calmed, but work remains.
Five electricity customers remained without power Friday morning, five days after Hurricane Irene's high winds and heavy rain hit Medford, according to National Grid.
In a statement Tuesday night, Mayor Michael McGlynn said the city had delayed trash services on Monday and City Hall operated with only essential personnel. By Tuesday, city services returned in full, he said.
"This “Frankenstorm” has affected the lives of 50 – 60 million people. Our
employees and thousands of others are working diligently and putting in many long hours to restore all damaged areas as quickly as possible," he said.
