The National Grid outage website reports that as of Thursday evening, power has been restored to all Stoughton customers following Monday's bout with Hurricane Sandy.

Hurricane Sandy-related outages in Stoughton peaked at about 2,100 of the town's 12,399 customers (17-percent) as of 6 a.m. Tuesday, the morning after the storm. But by 6 p.m. Tuesday, just 573 customers were without power (4.6 percent). By 5 a.m. Wednesday, 142 were without power (1.1 percent).

And, by Thursday morning, less than five customers in town were without power, according to the National Grid outage website. By Thursday at 5:30 p.m., all Stoughton customers had had their power restored.

When Stoughton was down to just a handful of scattered outages around town, Deputy Fire Chief Greg Goldberg wrote in an email, "I have received word from the Town of Stoughton liaison for National Grid [Debby Casna] that all "wires down" conditions in the town have been corrected. There are still a handfull of customers in the town without power, those having more complex issues are continuing to be addressed by National Grid, and other issues will be addressed by National Grid once the customers have safety issues corrected."

"If there are any customers who are still without power and have not been addressed, please call National Grid at 1-800-322-3223 to report outages. If you have a downed wire that has not been addressed call 911," he continued.

While the extent of the outages caused by Sandy were not as extensive as the ones caused by Tropical Storm Irene back in August 2011, town officials praised National Grid for its improvement in response time for this storm.

Goldberg concluded his email by writing "I would also like to thank National Grid and all of their workers for their dedication and hard work in restoring power to Stoughton."
