Fire Chief McMorrow is optimistic most of the power will be restored to Wrentham this afternoon. There may still be homes without power but he thinks the number will be less than 10. He hopes to see power in the center of town restored this afternoon. He credits State Senator Richard Ross and Staet Representative Dan Winslow for getting National Grid's attention.
Also, the Fire Truck Parade is still on tonight. It starts at 6 p.m. on Randall Road.
When the sun rose this morning power remained out for 206 of the 4,683 National Grid customers in Wrentham. Town officials say the utility company representatives thought power would be restored to the entire town Tuesday night but that didn't happen.
Furthermore, officials were initially happy with the community liaison approach that National Grid employed but say there have been breakdowns in communication during the restoration process.
Both Ross and Winslow have been contacting National Grid to encourage a better response for those still without power in their districts. On Winslow's Twitter feed he is suggesting people contact him either on Twitter @danwinslow, or at his State House office 617-722-2060 with information on power outages. After reviewing the town this morning he wrote, "In Wrentham now. Downtown biz district and West Wrentham neighborhoods still no power. Huge loss of biz for town."
