Bristol and Warren Remain Without Power; Cancellations Announced

National Grid estimated that full power may not be restored to Bristol and Warren until Monday night.


Nearly all of the 16,000-plus National Grid accounts in Bristol and Warren remained without power as of 9 pm Saturday night, and the utility estimated that full power may not be restored until late Monday.

As the two towns enter a second full day without electricity — most of the region went dark late Friday night as the height of the winter storm pushed through — each had opened shelters for residents.

In Bristol, the shelter is Mount Hope High School; Warren opened Kickemuit Middle School as its warm shelter.

The continued aftermath of the Blizzard of 2013 also forced many cancellations of events that had been scheduled for today:

  • The Bristol 4th of July Committee's Valentine's breakfast has been postponed until a date to be determined.
  • Tonight's scheduled 5 pm Mount Hope varsity hockey game at Dennis Lynch Arena in Pawtucket has been postponed, along with the entire slate of Rhode Island Interscholastic League games.
  • Our Lady of Mount Carmel School has cancelled Sunday classes for grades 1 through 9.
  • Saint Elizabeth Church has cancelled CCD for today and rescheduled its First Penance class to Feb. 16 at 11 am.
  • First Congregational Church of Bristol cancelled Sunday Services.
