Power restoration continues, snow storm on the way

National Grid crews continued to work around the clock to turn power back on for the Capital District Tuesday and were estimated to have restored power to more than 190,000 customers already, according to Patrick Stella, a spokesman for the power company.

Stella said that crews would be moving into more remote areas Wednesday to try and restore power to individual rural customers as well, but did not have an exact date for when all customers should be back up and running.

Customers who are still without power are advised to contact National Grid at 1-800-932-0301 in order to alert them that problems exist in certain areas.

According to the National Weather Service, the Capital District will see accumulations of anywhere between two and four inches of snow tonight into tomorrow morning, leaving a potentially dangerous commute ahead.

The storm could also change over to slight accumulations of sleet in freezing rain by 8 a.m. tomorrow, meteorologists said, but was not expected to be anywhere near as bad as last weeks destructive ice storm.
