Neighborhood Cut Off by Live Wires and Downed Trees First to Get Repair Cews

There are power outages in small and medium size scattered areas of both towns on Tuesday afte Hurricane Sandy moved through on Monday.

The Tally Ho Drive and Fox Run Road neighborhood in Hamilton will be the first to see power and tree crews as power restoration efforts get underway on Tuesday following Hurricane Sandy.

Fox Run Road resident Ken Dixon said a 75-year-old Oak tree in his yard came down at about 10 p.m. on Monday night.

Dixon said a total of six poles came down and that there were still live wires dangling at about 11 a.m. on Tuesday.

Because of the layout of the neighborhood, Fox Run Road is the only access to Tally Ho Road and Horsehoe Lane and it was completely blocked on Tuesday by the tree and wires.

Hamilton Town Manager Michael Lombardo said there are about eight major areas of Hamilton without power on Tuesday morning and National Grid has identified Fox Run Road as the top priority.

Other areas without power include Asbury Street north of Highland Street, Norris Road, Forest Street, School Street, Gregory Island Road, Partridgeberry Road and Cutler Road.
