If you are waking up without power this morning, you are not alone. Many residents of New Hampshire and Southern Maine are waking up in the dark this morning, thanks to the high winds and rain associated with Sandy. The storm morphed from a hurricane Monday night into a post-tropical cyclone. Winds were clocked at 76 mph on the Isles of Shoals and topped 140 mph at the top of Mount Washington. Those winds meant that residents were seeing their power go out early on Monday and the numbers just kept increasing as the day and evening rolled on. As of 7:30 this morning, PSNH is reporting that over 121,000 customers statewide are in the dark, with just about every southern town in the state affected, while that number is dropping, the heaviest still remain in Newmarket where 2,100, 940 in North Hampton and 720 in Greenland. PSNH says they believe that this will be a multi-day outage situation. Unitil is reporting that over 19,000 of their seacoast residents are offline, with a heavy concentration in the areas of Exeter with over 4,700 in the dark, over 4,000 in Seabrook, 1,700 in Stratham and over 2,100 in Hampton , all still without electricity. Central Maine Power is reporting over 34,000 of their York County customers are without power as well with well over 1,000 in Eliot, 1,600 in Kittery, and 2,086 in York. Utility companies are urging patience from their customers as they had to wait until the worst of the storm has passed, as Unitil’s Alex Omera said, they don’t want to put their crews at risk. WTSN reached out to various towns about tough to travel roads. Somersworth Police Captain Russ Timmons says most major roads are open, with the exception of a portion of Salmon Falls Road. Rochester Police Sgt. Todd Pinkham said the big road closure from last night, Rochester Hill Road, has now been cleared. the town of Hampton, Hampton Falls and Hampton Beach were pounded pretty hard yesterday, with sand rushing across roads almost like snow, but I just got off the phone with Hampton Police who say that only Timber Swamp road is closed. All other roads might be sandy, but are passable. Some crews did manage to get out in the overnight and started to do assessments, but the real heavy lifting will come today as they seek to remove downed trees and fix downed power lines. To the west, there are evacuations taking place near Gorham where there are concerns about rising water levels in Moose River and also the Peabody river. Now for those who need to seek shelter elsewhere, shelters have been set up in Dover at the Dover Baptist Church, at Rochester Middle School, and North Hampton Elementary school. Schools in Portsmouth, Rye, New Castle, Greenland, Newington, Exeter and Newfields all will begin two hours late on today, but many schools are closed today.
