Parts Of Cape, South Shore Could Be Without Power Until Friday Night

BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- There's still plenty of work for utility crews after this week's massive blizzard--especially on Cape Cod. 

Most who lost power have their lights back on, but as of noon Thursday, more than 30,000 customers are still without it.

Eversource spokesperson Mike Durand told WBZ that customers in greater New Bedford and Martha's Vineyard should have power by Thursday night.

"For the South Shore and Cape Cod, we expect to have power restored to most customers by Friday night at midnight," he said.

Durand said it's taking time because they have to access areas that are tough to get to--working street-by-street to clear the mess left by the storm.

"We had over a foot of heavy, wet snow," he said. "We had hurricane-force winds on Cape Cod and the South Shore. The combination of the two of those brought trees down toppling onto our power lines and onto our poles--significant damage."
