WESTFORD — A storm on Friday afternoon has left many residents without power through Saturday morning.

According to National Grid, over 2,000 customers, mostly concentrated in Nabnasset, are still without power at the time of reporting. Hundreds of other customers in Forge Village and Westford Center remain without power, with minimal outages reported in Graniteville.

The Department of Public Works and public safety crews are still clearing debris from the roadways, according to an announcement from the Town of Westford.

“Please use common sense when going out and give our crews time to clear the roads,”  the town wrote on its website.

“In conversations with National Grid at 10AM, they are resolving a number of emergency calls in the area. Back up crews are arriving from Canada and National Grid expects to make significant progress on standard restorations by the end of the day,” they added.

The Westford Academy home opener against Lowell has been delayed until 3:30 p.m. Westford Academy remains without power at the time of reporting.

The J.V. Fletcher Library is open until 5 p.m. for residents to use internet, charge devices or to cool off in the air-conditioning.
