Lights Out! Thousands in NH Without Power and More Outages Expected
Thousands of New Hampshire residents are without power as of 11:30 a.m. Thursday.
All major utility companies are reporting outages in the state from the nor'easter that blew in on Wednesday evening.
The snow is expected to continue through early afternoon, and outages are expected to rise.

Many of the outages are in the Seacoast area, but more are expected to pop up around the state.
Downed power lines even shut down Interstate 95 for more than 2 hours while crews worked to clear the area.
TRAFFIC ALERT: Interstate 95 has been fully reopened to traffic near Exit 3. The highway was closed for two and a half hours due to fallen wires across both northbound and southbound lanes.— NHDOT (@NewHampshireDOT) March 8, 2018
