As of 11 a.m., fewer than 100 customers in Swampscott were without electricity.



As of 11 a.m., 96 customers (homes and/or businesses) were without power in Swampscott, according to a National Grid spokeswoman.

There is no estimated time at which power will be restored since crews are working onmultiple outgaes throughout the state, the spokeswoman said.

Statewide there are now under 200,000 customers without power. 

As of midnight Monday an estimated 1,100 homes and businesses were without power in Swampscott, Fire Chief Kevin Breen said.

About 300 of the homes were in the Blodgett Avenue and Cutting Road area.

And part of Vinnin Square, on the Stop & Shop side, along with Paradise Road from Whole Foods Market to Swampscott Avenue, was without power, the fire chief said.

The power outages at Vinnin Square and on Paradise were an on-again off-again affair.

At 6:30 p.m. the power had been restored to most of the 1,500 customers who lost electricity earlier Monday.

National Grid buckets were in the air throughout the afternoon, keeping up with the downed lines and restoring power to Vinnin Square and Essex Street among other areas.

But earlier, at 3 p.m., the chief reported power outages were rampant.

About 1,500 homes and businesses were without power at that time.

They included all of Vinnin Square, parts of Essex Street and the high numbered end of Humphrey Street, he said.
