We spoke with one woman who was upset that her tennis match was canceled due to Monday’s weather. 

“I came in from Warren, so nothing happened over there, so it was all nice and then all of a sudden it was canceled,” said Helena Paez. “And this then happened the trees down the courts are full of branches.” 

No word on how long it will take to clean up the debris and trees around the city. Eversource is reporting that all outages in the area should be fixed by 1:30 a.m.
