WESTBOROUGH, Mass. — National Grid continues to work on the current power outages in Westborough, which now totals about 900 households.
A timetable for the return of power has not been established.
Police Chief Alan Gordon said there is still a sizeable chunk of homes without power in the East part of town.
Significant work had to be done on Smith Street and Crestview Drive, where downed trees were affecting power lines. Gordon said the tree on Smith Street snapped a utility pole.
"That seems to be the main problem with re-energizing the wires in those areas," he said.
Although about 20 percent of the town was without power for some time, Gordon said the moderate damage from Hurricane Sandy was handled very well by the DPW.
"I hate to say we're getting good at, but that's the case," Gordon said.
"The DPW did a fantastic job last year and again this year."
Meeting Room 24 of the Forbes Municipal Building is available for residents who ned to charge electronic devices and the YMCA at 4 Valente Dr. is welcoming anyone in need of working showers.
Downed limbs from Hurricane Sandy will not be picked up curbside, but can be brought to E.L. Harvey's dump on Hopkinton Road, police said.
A valid dump sticker from the Westborough Board of Health is required.
