TELL US: How Has NSTAR's Sandy Response Compared to Irene?
The number of power outages dropped significantly, but many residents were still in the dark for several hours.
As of Thursday evening, about 400 Lexington NSTAR customers were without power, according to NSTAR's outage map. This number represented about 3 percent of the total NSTAR customers in the town.
While power may not have been an issue for some, at least 20 percent of local residents spent at least some of the storm in the dark.
During the height of Hurricane Sandy, well over 2,000 NSTAR customers were without power, or more than 15 percent of the town's total power customers.
The utility company has been chipping away at the power restorations over the last few days. Although, interestingly, there were more without power for most of Tuesday than during the height of the storm on Monday.
According to the NSTAR website, power restoration in Lexington should have been completed sometime last night, Nov. 1.
Now that the winds and rain have settled, What do you think of NSTAR's response in Lexington? Was it better or worse than the response with Hurricane Irene or the "Snowtober" storm?
