Sudbury Police Department News

Good afternoon. Residents without power have been reduced to less than 100 with crews continuing to work. In assessing the viability of school tomorrow the roads and walkways have greatly improved over the past couple of days. Although there remains a tremendous amount of work to do I feel, with everyone’s cooperation and diligence, school is feasible tomorrow but I would ask everyone to please give yourself extra time and be aware of hazards. Tree crews will be out again tomorrow clearing debris to include branches/brush placed within 10 feet of the roadway. There is a tremendous amount to be dealt with and I noticed a number of residents have other debris beyond that resulting from the storm that has added to the work load. With the pending storm the cleanup will need to be put on hold but will resume when able to do so. Please prepare for the next storm and we can all hope it is less impactful than the recent one. Thank you!

Good morning. The vast majority of residents have had the power restored but for those that remain without power I am sure they are beyond frustrated. Eversource contacted the Public Safety Center this morning relating there ae 24 crews dedicated to Sudbury this morning. Residents who do not have power please ensure you have contacted Eversource either by phone or on the website so you do not get overlooked. If your service was torn from your house you need to have an electrician repair the service to the point where Eversource connects to your house. The electrician will know what needs to be done. The Building Inspector and Electrical Inspector have posted numbers on the Town website for inspections. Six tree crews provided at the direction of the Lieutenant Governor and MEMA at the request of the Town Manager along with the Department of Public Works will be out clearing debris. As a reminder, if you put limbs/branches/brush within 10 feet of the roadway crews will remove it for you. The shelter is closing this morning but a couple of hotel rooms have been identified at a reduced rate. If you are in need of a hotel room, please see the Board of Health page on the Town website. The library will be open from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM today and tomorrow from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM. The Longfellow Club continues their hospitality allowing resident to shower, warm up and charge devices.

Good evening. Chief Nix with an evening update. Although Eversource was unable to meet their goal I have seen even more resources arriving providing some hope. The Eversource website indicates the outage in Sudbury has been reduced down to 15% of customers. The Town Manager had the opportunity to speak with Lieutenant Governor Polito requesting additional resources some of which will be dedicated to debris removal. Beginning tomorrow morning, additional crews as well as the DPW will commence debris clearing operations. As part of this effort, if residents can get branches/brush within 10 feet of the roadway crews with remove it for you. With falling temperatures and residents still without power, the Senior Center will remain open at least until tomorrow morning for those that need a warm place to sleep. They ask if you could check in by 11:00 PM it would be appreciated. With crews continuing to work let’s hope most get their power restored sooner than later. Thank you and try to have a good night!

Some residents have indicated they have been checking the Eversource website regarding their status learning their power was allegedly restored where that was not. If this is indeed the case please check with neighbors to ensure it is not an issue specific to your residence and the area remains without power. Either way please notify Eversource of the discrepancy. Thank you!

We have been helping to facilitate repairs and debris removal by assigning officers to numerous crews throughout the day who continue to work. Progress has been made in some areas but we still have trees and power lines coming down sporadically setting things back some. There remains approximately 1,500 Sudbury customers who remain without power. Eversource still has a 6:00 PM goal for substantial restoration today. Given the assessment of remaining issues I am unsure if that goal will be met. I want people to be aware so you can plan accordingly. The library will be open until 5:00 PM for warming and charging. The Senior Center remains open for warming, charging and showers. The numbers at the center are far less than yesterday so we are assessing whether to keep it open. As it stands now, it is planned to be open until at least 8:00 PM this evening. If you feel you will need to spend the evening please call the Senior Center at (978) 443-3055 to let staff know so we can plan appropriately. Thank you! Chief Nix

Please refrain for calling our dispatch center inquiring to estimated restoration of power times. Contact Eversource MA for those questions. Per Eversource a substantial amount of Town will be back online by this evening. Thank You.

Good morning. This is Chief Nix yet again. We have a number of Eversource crews dedicated to Sudbury today restoring more power. As well the Department of Public Works is out clearing debris. The number of residents without power has decreased but we are hoping the majority of remaining outages are restored today. The Senior Center remains open for warming, charging and now how shower capabilities. The library will be open from 10-5 today for warming and charging. LS is NOT open for showers today but the Longfellow Club has offered their facility for residents who need to shower. I know with the sunny weather residents will want to get outside but please be careful of downed wires or unknown hazards that may not be seen. Be aware of debris that has fallen that may have wires entangled. I am proud of how our residents and staff have come together to make it through the obstacles that have been before us. Thank you!

Crews continue to work to restore power. According to the Eversource website outages have been reduced by half of what they were earlier today, down to 21% of Sudbury customers are without power. I am grateful for the efforts but remind residents to still remain vigilant and plan for the uncertain. Eversource still maintains they will have substantial completion of their power restorations efforts by 6:00 PM, tomorrow March 10th. As I have stated continually, please be aware of hazards to include those you may not be aware of. I want to thank the collaborative efforts of everyone as a community. The shelter at the Senior Center, 40 Fairbanks, remains open for those that need a location to warm, charge or spending the evening. The Goodnow Library will be open tomorrow morning as well. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need assistance. Police and Fire personnel are more than willing to assist those in need. Please stay positive and think of those in worse situations. Thank you!

Trees, poles and wires continue to come down negating some of the progress made. Crews are continuing their efforts. Please be cognizant of downed wires. Motorists and pedestrians alike disregard our safety precautions tearing down caution tape and moving barricades. We have them in place for everyone’s safety, PLEASE abide by the warnings. There is not sufficient personnel to maintain a presence given we are responding to additional issues that develop. Please be safe and stay away from downed wires and keep in mind there may be wires you cannot see. Over 50% of Sudbury remains without power according to Eversource’s website. Their goal is to restore power to as many as quickly as they can which means they typically concentrate on main lines that feed larger areas and do not concentrate on side roads or single services until later in their restoration efforts. Given this, please understand we try to keep Eversource updated regularly but we do not have estimates on the return of power. The Senior Center at 40 Fairbank Road remains open for those that need to warm up and charge their devices. If needed, please utilize this opportunity. The library is going to open at noon until 5:00 PM today for the same purposes. Please keep an eye on neighbors, particularly those that may be more vulnerable. Thank you and hoping for more improvements!

Crews are continuing to work to clear roads but over half the town remains without power according to the Eversource website. We have officers and firefighters escorting various crews to the problematic areas. Please drive extremely cautiously watching out for falling, hanging debris or debris that may be completely blocking a roadway. We have tried to provide warning for areas we are aware of but unfortunately motorists have chosen to take down or remove them requiring us to repost them several times in some areas. The Senior Center located at 40 Fairbank Road will remain open throughout the night for those who are in need of a place to get warm, charge electronic devices or stay the evening.

All Sudbury Schools and Town Offices are closed tomorrow 3/9/18.

Power out? Another way you can contact Eversource MA

Storm Update - Please Use Caution

This is Chief Nix once again. Headway has been made with clearing several routes particularly those that lead to the Senior Center at 40 Fairbank Road which is currently open as a warming/charging facility. Some power has been restored but those without power should plan for being without power at least overnight. There is extensive damage in many areas the restoration of which has yet to begin in full force. Eversource is concentrating on getting roads open. We have not been given any time estimates for the returning the power. I wish we had better news but please be safe and prepare appropriately. Thank you.

This is Chief Nix with the Sudbury Police Department. The recent storm has severely impacted Sudbury. Numerous roads remain closed with trees and live wires down. There is a map of major closures on our website. Although the storm is over there remains numerous hazards. I would strongly urge residents not to go out walking placing yourself in danger of electrical hazards, falling debris and traffic. The ability to navigate the roads is extremely difficult given the number of closures. If possible I would strongly suggest you stay home but if you need to leave please give yourself plenty of time and drive cautiously. Trees continue to fall and unfortunately we had one strike a resident who was severely injured. Thank you for your cooperation and patience. A warming/charging center is opening at 1:00 PM at the Senior Center, 40 Fairbank Road. Residents are welcome to bring their devices and charges to the center to warm while recharging batteries.

Please stay home if you can! We are trying our best to work with the Fire Department, the Department of Public Works as well as Eversource to clear the roadways which remain closed. Increased traffic volume is impeding those efforts. We are worried about residents and their safety. The storm may be just about over but the safety concerns with falling trees and electrical hazards poses a real danger. We have detours in place for a reason which many motorists are disregarding and either have to turn around or put themselves at peril by driving under/over live wires and precarious trees. Please be patient for your own safety as well as your loved ones and enjoy the indoors! Thank you!

Please refrain from contacting the Public Safety Dispatch Center to inquire about how long it is going to take to get power back. If there is an emergency please do not hesitate to call but those who are calling regarding power restoration or road conditions are taking resources away from handling the continuing emergencies. If you can stay home please do so. RTE 20 is shut down once again with no eta on reopening along with many major routes through Sudbury. The Eversource website indicates 74% of Sudbury is without power. We have been in touch with Eversource keeping them updated. The Fire Chief is working on the logistics of opening a warming/charging center located at 40 Fairbanks Road, Senior Center, but we need to get Hudson Road and Maynard Road open so residents can get there. We are hoping to have this open at 1:00 PM. We will keep you posted.

If your power is out call Eversource, the police do not have restoration times. The Dispatch Center is handling multiple emergency calls.

*Official Sudbury PD Road Closure Map* We will update as time allows. Please be aware that this is not a complete list. *Update 3/10/18 @ 01:06PM*

Storm Update - Please Use Caution

Link to known road closures from 3/7-3/8 Winter Storm: (We apologize that this link was not working earlier)

Hazard Statement from the Sudbury Police in regards to heavy storm damage throughout Town: Over night conditions from the storm deteriorated rapidly. There are multiple Roads that are blocked from trees or power lines falling. We can not stress enough that any power line on or near the ground is likely live and presents a danger if persons go near them on foot or by car. If a road closed sign, officers are blocking a road or you come upon a fallen tree or power line take the danger seriously. We will be putting a list out at some point in regard to closures we are aware of. There are still likely areas or hazards we are not aware of due to the rapidly changing conditions. Trees are continuing to fall as this statement is being written. If you have to be on the roads use extreme caution.

Due to the storm we are experiencing trees and wires down, keep in mind all down wires should be treated as live, stay away from them.

Due to the heavy snow we are beginning to experience trees and wires down in parts of town. Keep in mind any down wires should be considered live and you should stay away from them.

"Come all without, come all within, you'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn" - Looks like Bob Dylan forecasted today's storm back in the 1960's. Hopefully, it isn't so "Mighty" but with snow predictions all over the place, please make sure you have your milk, bread, and water all set before the storm starts.
