UPDATE (7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 29) - Foxborough Fire Chief Roger Hatfield says 37 percent of the town is currently without power as of 7 p.m. Monday evening.
Hatfield said National Grid is ready and waiting to get into town and start restoring power but cannot do so until wind conditions drop below 30 mph, which appears to be happening now.
"The wind, to my understanding, has dropped below 30 mph," Hatfield said. "I will try and get an answer from them on when the crews will begin [addressing the power outages in town]."
Hatfield said National Grid has identified four areas that are causing 37 percent of the town to be without power.
"We are just waiting to figure out when they can get in here and start fixing it," Hatfield said.
Those four areas are:
- Mechanic and Lane streets
- Pleasant Street
- Hope Avenue
- Main Street and Colony Road
