Crews prepping for outages ahead of storm

CONCORD (AP) – Utility crews are preparing for power outages in advance of the stormy weather and 50 mile-per-hour-wind gusts forecast for New Hampshire.

Utilities are securing additional crews. Heavy rain and strong winds were expected from Wednesday night into Thursday.

Alec O’Meara, a spokesman for Unitil, said the heavy overnight rain, combined with early morning winds, have the potential to create an extended period of hazardous conditions. That may mean that areas may lose power multiple times after an initial restoration.
