Eversource Crews Working to Clear and Repair Damage as Nor’easter Batters New Hampshire with Heavy, Wet Snow and Strong Winds

Mar 14, 2023


Energy company coordinating with public safety officials, communities to address critical priorities

MANCHESTER, N.H (March 14, 2023) – With the winds forecast to intensify through the afternoon and evening, more than 800 Eversource line, tree and service crews are actively working across New Hampshire to address public safety priorities, clear damage and make repairs as heavy, wet snow from the ongoing Nor’easter brings trees and limbs down onto the electric system. With the support of out-of-state crews including from Canada, the energy company’s lineworkers and remote system operators have restored power to more than 60,000 customers since the storm began.

“This is a long-duration storm with multiple fronts, and strengthening winds combined with significant amounts of heavy, wet snow will continue to cause tree damage to the electric system and additional outages into tomorrow,” said Eversource New Hampshire President of Electric Operations Doug Foley. “We’re coordinating closely with our communities and public safety officials to respond to blocked roads and other critical safety priorities, and we thank our customers for their understanding as our more than 800 line, tree and service crews safely work to respond to issues and repair damage during the persistent challenging conditions from this Nor’easter.”

With winds expected to strengthen through this afternoon and tonight as the Nor’easter also continues to dump swaths of heavy, wet snow in areas across the state, additional damage to the electric system and new outages will continue into tomorrow. Current outages, including a community-by-community list, are available and updated approximately every 10–15 minutes on the energy company’s Outage Map. In addition to power outages, damage from the storm has so far caused more than 110 blocked roads across the state.

Eversource continues to urge customers to always stay clear of downed wires, report them immediately to 911 and report any outage online at or by calling 800-662-7764. Customers who rely on generators should operate it outdoors, as far away from the home as possible, and away from any air vents, windows and doors.
