Good Morning All,

 

Nstar worked at restoring power very late last night.  Currently Surfside’s power was not restored and management at the resort have been contacting Nstar to rush technicians back out to the property.  They have also been contacting Comcast to get their cable and telephone lines running.  We are crossing our fingers that technicians will be able to restore all power today.  We will keep everyone updated!
