Power out in Aquinnah and Chilmark


As of 12:03 pm Tuesday, every house in Aquinnah and 48.2% of Chilmark customers went dark as a result of a downed wire on Menemsha Road in Chilmark. 

Media relations manager for Eversource, Reid Lamberty, told The Times that the outage may have been caused by a downed tree felled by the heavy rain.

“The repair has been made and customers should be getting their power back soon,” Lamberty said at 2 pm.

The electricity outage affected 563 Eversource customers in Aquinnah and 906 customers in Chilmark, according to the company’s website
