Tony an employee at Eversource Energy said residents should expect power around 8: 30 a.m. Crews installed a generator earlier in the morning, however, it did not work. Tony said when a generator is being used, it’s usually because major repairs or underground service needs to be made.

Viewers told 22News power at the Mason Square apartments has been out since Monday night and several residents were without lights or hot water.

“There was no hot water or heat we didn’t have telephones or anything it was cold. It was pretty cold this morning.

-Joann Sanders, Mason Square Apartments resident

Power was restored throughout the building around 8:30 this morning.
