New Hampshire getting the power back on Saturday after storm

February 8, 2020 GMT

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — More than half of the residents who lost power in New Hampshire during a storm had it back by midday Saturday, and crews were working to finish the job.

About 15,000 power outages remained across the state on Saturday morning, the New Hampshire Department of Safety said. More than 35,000 outages were reported in more than 115 cities and towns in the state at one point, the department said.

The state said utilities companies expected most outages to be restored by the end of the day on Saturday, but it was possible some could linger into Sunday. Hundreds of crews were working to assess damage from the storm.
