Claremont was whacked by Monday storm
“There were a couple of isolated areas where I suspect the wind was in the 40 mile an hour range and that’s where it caused the damage,” Claremont Fire Chief Rick Bergeron said Tuesday.
The west-moving storm hit the city around 5 p.m. Monday, starting with high winds, he said.
A small section of the northeast corner of the city served by New Hampshire Electric Cooperative did not have its power restored until early morning, he said.
Red Water Brook Road, Sullivan Street, Rosita Lane and River Road were the most severely hit, he said.
About 100 facilities in town, including schools, factories and the hospital, are part of the system.
Bruce Temple, Claremont director of Public Works, said there were road closures Monday night due to down trees and power lines.
