1540 WADK.com Updates

National Grid says it could be days before electricity is fully restored to all of the Rhode Island customers currently without it. A major rain and wind storm Sunday night led to almost one-third of the utility's Ocean State base reporting an outage by noon yesterday, and National Grid's online outage map indicated the outage number finally dropped just below one-hundred thousand overnight Monday. Utility officials say there are almost 160 crews working to restore service. Governor Gina Raimondo, who surveyed storm damage in Warwick on Monday, tweeted Monday evening that workers are going as fast as they can to restore power and mitigate damage from the storm.
