SANDWICH, MASS. (WHDH) - Eversource has called in hundreds out-of-state utility crews in preparation for a nor’easter that could cause power outages in Massachusetts this weekend.

“We’re ready for whatever this weekend’s winter storm brings, with hundreds of out-of-state crews arriving to the Commonwealth to work alongside our Eversource team,” New England’s largest energy delivery company said in a tweet.

The company says its trucks are fully stocked, gassed up, and ready to go for mutual aid lineworkers who recently arrived in the Bay State from Michigan and Florida.

“If you do lose power during the storm, you can count on our crews to be there when you need them,” Eversource added.

Winds are also slated to intensify by midday Saturday with 50-60 mph gusts expected at the coast and 60-70 mph gusts possible across Cape Cod and the Islands. Points inland can expect 35-50 mph gusts.

The National Weather Service warned of tree damage, considerable blowing and drifting snow, and near white out conditions at times.
