As of Sunday at 7:20 pm, less than 300 homes across the Island were without power, down from a little more than 600 at the start of the day, according to online outage maps. West Tisbury has the highest concentration of homes without electricity.

The Steamship Authority ferries are back running. “Yes we have resumed service this morning,” Bob Davis, general manager for the SSA, wrote in an email. “The M/V Nantucket had an issue with a generator but should be operating on its next scheduled trip.”

Davis wrote that there are some issues with “communication providers” that is affecting the website. “Our IT department is working with the various providers to get it up and running,” he wrote.

As of 11 am, the SSA website was back up.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has issued another coastal flood advisory for Sunday morning from 11 am to 3 pm for eastern Massachusetts, including the Cape and Islands. “Minor coastal flooding is likely for today’s high tide,” the alert states. “The typical low-lying areas will most likely see inundation as well as locations that have received breaches in dunes and seawalls.”

The  Chappy ferry has also resumed running.
