“That kept a lot of traffic off the roads and away from hazard areas,” Thomas said.
In Londonderry, police Chief and acting Town Manager William Hart said the cleanup had been “slow, but steady.”
Sections of Auburn Road and Route 28 in town were the slowest to be reopened, Hart said.
Town officials and PSNH employees worked diligently to restore power to the town, he said, and calls to the police station were kept to a minimum.
“It’s difficult to prepare for a 1,000-year event,” Hart said.
