Power off and on in South for the last couple of hours. Currently off. C'mon NG, it's starting to get really cold!

National Grid is reporting approximately 2,200 residents are without power in South Tewksbury. Crews are currently "assessing the condition," and there is no reported restoration time yet. We have heard from a few people who have power back at this point. We'll update as more information becomes available.
