Up to 5 More Days in the Dark for Some, Police Say
Several 'severely damaged areas' will need more time to restore power.
Madison Borough Police Saturday afternoon sent out a message to residents still without power: Be ready for the outage to continue for up to five more days.
In a statement released Saturday afternoon, police said power potentially could be restored earlier.
Police said the Madison Electric Utility is aware of all outages and asked residents not to call the company unless there is an emergency.
The delay in restoration is related to a "significant number of severely damaged areas with poles down that require complete rebuilds," the police statement said.
Utility crews are working around the clock to restore power for those still in the dark, according to police.
Residents can find additional information on gas and power at www.rosenet.org. Also, police said periodic print updates on power restoration will be available at the library and in the Madison Police Department foyer.
