Power restored for thousands in Cumberland & Lincoln

 By News Staff,


The power for nearly two thousand people in parts of Cumberland and Lincoln is back on after being out for several hours Thursday morning.

National Grid says the outage happened after a wire came down around 4:30 am on Valley Street.  Crews had the issue fixed by 7:30 am.

“Real pain, my temperature dropped like rocks,” said Chris Laporte, Cumberland.

“You figure the coldest day of the season,” said Peter Cannata, Cumberland.

Temperatures were hovering around zero during the time of the outage.

Nation Grid says it’s unclear what caused the wire to come down.
