BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) — An early November storm hit southern New England with strong winds, high surf and some snow while knocking out power to thousands of customers.
Southeastern Massachusetts including Cape Cod was hardest hit Sunday. The area is served by NStar, which said more than 7,200 of its customers remained without electricity Sunday afternoon, down from more than 13,500 earlier in the day.
The Cape Cod Times reports the storm knocked down trees and utility poles and flooded roads across the cape. Ferry services to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket were suspended temporarily because of the weather.
Some snow fell in Boston and in Foxboro, where the New England Patriots were playing Sunday.
National Grid reports scattered outages elsewhere in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Connecticut utilities reported about 8,100 outages Sunday afternoon.
