Much of East Providence regains power, rest of East Bay still in the dark
EAST PROVIDENCE — Just in time for what is expected to be a bone-chilling night, much of East Providence regained power around 7 o'clock Saturday, Feb. 9.
National Grid's latest update showed about 3,000 city residents still without electricity as of 7:30 p.m., down from over 17,000 for much of the day as the area recovers from the effects of winter storm Nemo.
East Providence EMA Director Wayne Barnes reported most of those still without power live on Willett Avenue south of Forbes Street. There remains scattered outages in smaller pockets of the city.
Most of East Providence is back on line, but nearly all of Barrington and Warren remains without power and about half of Bristol is still in the dark. National Grid earlier said those areas were most affected by high winds associated with the storm.
