National Grid says it needs access to reconnect power in flood stricken counties

National Grid says it needs access to approximately 150 meters in Herkimer County before can restore power to the affected residences and businesses.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – National Grid says it needs access to approximately 150 meters in Herkimer County before can restore power to the affected residences and businesses.

The utility says it must be able to assess the damage to the homes and businesses before it can restore power.

The meters are concentrated in Ilion and Herkimer, according to National Grid.

Customers who have not had an inspection should call the company at 1-800-642-4272.

National Grid says if it can’t inspect the structures, it will be compelled to shut off service outside the building, which could include digging through lawns to access service pipes.
