PRINCETON, Mass. - As of Tuesday morning, the entire town of Princeton has been without power since about 5 p.m. Monday night.
They have more than 1,500 meters in town. Every home and business is without power, unless they are running a generator. The Princeton Municipal Light Department said there is major damage to their system.
While crews are spread out across town working to bring power back, the department is asking customers to be patient and stay safe.
"Continue using a generator, definitely continue using your generator, keep warm as best as you can," said PMLD's Ashley Reddy. "Hunker down, stay safe. I know our line crews are out there clearing trees and downed wires. If you feel as though there is a major line or tree or something that is going across your property endangering you, please give the office staff a call."
A warming shelter is open at Thomas Prince school. There is no timeline for the repairs.
More snow is expected to hit the area Wednesday, and while that is a concern for crews, their focus is on restoring power to the community as soon as possible.
