NEW: Sen. Brown Wants Plans from MA Utilities Ahead of Hurricane

Thursday, October 25, 2012

 

Massachusetts Republican Senator Scott Brown sent a letter to the Commonwealth's utility companies on Thursday requesting their plans regarding the possible landfall of Hurricane Sandy.

"With Massachusetts potentially in the path of the landfall of Hurricane Sandy, I write to request specific information regarding your preparations, including a comparison of the number of line crews and repair personnel you have at your disposal today, compared to this time last year," wrote Brown.

A year ago this week, an early season snowstorm dropped inches of snow across much of the Bay State leaving thousands of area residents, who were prepared to endure brief power outages of 24 to 48 hours, with no access to electricity for weeks.

With the Category 2 storm now forecasted to reach the Northeast early next week, Brown said he wanted to make sure there are proper plans in place to ensure that Massachusetts residents are not forced to endure unnecessary extended power outages again.

"I applaud the recent statements from your companies indicating that you have made an effort to complete more tree trimming work in preparation for major storms, which I hope will be helpful should this storm hit," Brown wrote.

"With a powerful hurricane potentially approaching, and as I look to share the most up-to-date information with my constituents, I look forward to your prompt response to my request."
