Resources you may need before, during, and after the storm

Above: The latest snowfall projection from the National Weather Service

We don’t know exactly how much snow we’re going to get over the next 36 hours, but it’s probably safe to assume it’s going to be a fair bit. Forecasters say the snow will be wet and heavy. Combine that with blizzard-strength winds, and there’s a real potential for downed trees and limbs along with power outages.

In the event you need assistance before, during, or after the storm, here are some numbers that might help.

Important phone numbers

  • For medical and other emergencies: 9-1-1
  • To report trees/limbs down or other non-emergency situations to the Southborough Police: (508) 485-2147
  • To report a National Grid outage at your house or neighborhood: 800-322-3223 or website
  • To report wires down or an electrical emergency to National Grid: (800) 465-1212
  • To report a Verizon outage: 1-800-VERIZON (1-800-837-4966)
  • General response information: Mass 211, dial 2-1-1 and ask for Southborough

Where to find information and updates

Later today I’ll be switching over to the tried-and-true Live Blog format, and will be posting updates as I get them. I’ll also be updating Facebook and Twitter. Town officials say they will be updating their Twitter feed, as well. Here are the links you’ll need to stay up to date.

Sounds like you’ve got a command post, Sue! Thanks for posting…though if this storm goes as most others, we’ll be out of power and out of Cell Phone range before too long.
