15,000 were without power as huge gusts of winds in NH - up to 74 mph - knock down trees


15,000 Granite Staters were without power for parts of Wednesday night.

Crews were working to restore power after the windy weather downed trees and power lines across southern New Hampshire.

According to NH1 News Chief Meteorologist Joe Joyce, winds got up to 74 mph on the Isle of Shoals.

In Goffstown, a tree knocked down wires on Grady Hill Road, shutting it down for travel and power as crews worked to remove the tree. More downed wires caused another closure on Locust Hill Road.

In Hooksett, downed power lines in the road prompted the closure of Martins Ferry Road from Benton Road to Cemetery Road.

Eversource reported that 15,000 customers were affected by the outages.
