In speaking with Eversource and the Emergency Management region 5 team, New Milford Mayor Pete Bass says no real answers were obtained. He says Eversource continues to do damage assessments to the electric grid. Bass says limited mutual Aid Crews from COVID hot spots limited the initial wave of additional response.
As a general rule, Eversource is looking at days for restoration, to some outlying areas over a week for restoration.
