Hurricane Lee serves as a ‘great reminder’ to be prepared for all types of weather

As Post Tropical Cyclone Lee moves north, the New Hampshire Department of Safety’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEM) reminds residents and visitors of the continued importance of preparedness.

“Hurricane Lee is a great reminder for New Hampshire residents and visitors to be prepared for all types of weather,” said HSEM Director Robert Buxton. “We were fortunate to escape the rainfall and much of the strong winds during this storm. However, the Atlantic Hurricane season remains active through November. It’s still a good time to review your family emergency plan and make sure your emergency kit is stocked.”

The State Emergency Operations Center returned to Steady State at 3 p.m. Staff will continue to monitor power outages.

If you lose power, report the outage to your utility provider every 24 hours until it is restored:

  • Eversource 1-800-662-7764
  • Liberty Utilities 1-855-349-9455
  • NH Electric Co-Op 1-800-343-6432
  • Unitil 1-888-301-7700
