Power Fully Restored in Attleboro, Seekonk

Three days after Attleboro and Seekonk felt a portion of a super storm, power was fully restored to both communities by National Grid. The final customers were back online before the end of the day Thursday, according to the utility's website. More than 4,700 total customers, including more than half of those serviced in Seekonk, lost power during or in the aftermath of the storm.

If you are still without power, you should call National Grid at 1-800-465-1212.

Hurricane Sandy caused numerous trees to fall and downed several power lines, sometimes in related incidents. Flooding was also reported. Other than a fire at a South Attleboro business that may have been due to the storm (it is under investigation), no serious damage was reported in either community. Attleboro and Seekonk were spared, while many other communities in nearby states were not.
