Mayor Kevin Dumas released the following statement this morning:
As of 9:10 a.m., there remain 765 customers without power out of the 19,000 National Grid customers in Attleboro. The largest area without power encompasses the following area: Peckham, Pike, Wilmarth and Slater Streets. All streets located off of these streets are without power. It is expected that this area be restored by this evening per National Grid.
Please make sure that you have reported your power outage to National Grid at 800-322-3223.
However, residents may come to the emergency shelter at Attleboro High School through the Principal's Lobby to warm themselves. This shelter remains open, has food, and is pet friendly as long as animals are brought with cage or crate.
The city respectfully requests that you remain off the roadways in order to allow the Department of Public Works-Highway Division employees and contractors to do their work throughout the day today. All public and private resources are deployed in full capacity and have been since the inception of the winter storm.
We are asking for your help! There is rain and more snow predicted over the next seven days. Please remove snow around fire hydrants and clear catch basin drains in front of your homes. This will alleviate flooding and drainage problems that are expected to occur this week.
