Power back out for some RI residents

Providence, RI – While power was fully restored by National Grid crews yesterday, it seems to be out again for a number of Rhode Islanders. Nearly 3 thousand customers are without power again this morning. Outages are concentrated in areas around Pawtucket, Barrington, and Kingston, however, small numbers of customers scattered throughout the state are reported to be without electricity.

According to National Grid Spokesperson Amy Zorich, crews have been working since outages were reported early this morning, and customers should all have their power returned later today.
