Utilities prepare for possible outages in blizzard

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire utilities are preparing for possible outages as a blizzard bears down on New England. The storm is expected to bring more than a foot of snow to coastal areas of New Hampshire and Maine by Sunday with wind gusts of 60 mph. Unitil Corporation says the high winds and hazardous driving conditions could cause outages and the extreme weather could slow efforts to restore service. Spokesman Alec O'Meara says in a blizzard, bucket trucks will be unable to extend their arms because of high winds at the storm's peak. Unitil says it has secured extra crews to help if outages occur.
