Nearly all residents remain without power as utility workers repaired lines along Route 121 yesterday.
Portions of Academy Road, Coventry Road and the Bryant Woods development regained power yesterday.
The fire station is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., for residents to take showers.
Volunteers are serving free hot meals from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., at Atkinson Community Center, 4 Main St. (Route 121).
Atkinson residents looking for overnight shelter can go to Sanborn Regional High School in Kingston, where the American Red Cross is operating a shelter.
School is closed today in Atkinson.
The town remains largely in the dark. About 1,200 customers are without power.
All town roads are passable by car, but there are numerous streets and roads that are not in shape for school buses and some trucks. Those roads include Cotton Farm, Colby, Kingston, Long Pond, Emerald, Jade and Huntington Hill, as well as Hillside Terrace.
Schools are closed today.
The town remains under a local state of emergency, with about 40 percent of the residents waiting for power to be restored.
No deaths or serious injuries have been caused by the ice storm, but firefighters have responded to several calls about carbon monoxide issues, fire Lt. William Gillis said.
Two houses caught fire Sunday, Battalion Chief Michael Doyle said. No one was injured, but a family at 88 Rockingham Road was displaced after a generator caused a fire around 3:30 a.m. Doyle described the structural damage as "significant."
The second fire broke out around 1 p.m. Sunday at 12 Scenic Drive. That fire caused "substantial damage," Doyle said, and started in a fireplace. Both fires are related to the ice storm, he said.
Gillis said people without electricity should turn their appliances off to avoid damage from a power surge. They should stay away from downed lines because the wires can arc when the electricity is restored.
Downed power lines and trees continue to cause problems on numerous streets, Gillis said. Motorists are asked to obey all road signs and observe barricades for their own safety. People are being warned to use caution because of debris and utility crews working in the roads.
Five roads are closed: Fairview Avenue, Gaita Drive, Warner Hill Road (north of Floyd Road), Eden Street (west end of the road) and North Shore Road at Rockingham Road.
But Route 102 from the Londonderry town line to the Chester town line is open. Bypass 28 from the Auburn town line to the Windham town line is open.
Bottled drinking water is available at the rear entrance of the Derry Municipal Center between 7 and 11 p.m.
The Derry Bureau of Emergency Management used the mail service to provide residents with storm information yesterday. People who need to stay in a shelter are directed to the Londonderry High School gym on Mammoth Road. The shelter telephone is 434-6086.
The Derry Shelter hot line is 845-5522; residents with water problems may use that number.
Also, residents who need water can bring empty containers to the Derry Municipal Center, 14 Manning St.; Derry fire headquarters, 131 E. Broadway; and Derry Police Department, 1 Municipal Drive.
School is canceled today.
Driving remains "treacherous" due to downed power wires and trees lying along the sides of roads, police Chief Joe Beaudoin said. However, most roads are passable. Some roads are being closed temporarily, while crews work to clear debris and restore power.
One or two utility trucks were working in town yesterday, but 80 percent of Hampstead residents remain without power.
"Don't get me wrong, they are working hard," Beaudoin said. "But it's going to be a long haul."
Lights have been restored on Main Street, Emerson Avenue and along a small section of Route 111.
The shelter at Hampstead Middle School is staying open. On Sunday night, 15 to 20 people stayed overnight. The shelter can accommodate 100 people.
Residents can come in for showers, food or to warm up. The shelter will not allow pets, but pets can go to Carol's Grooming.
"The residents have reacted well," Beaudoin said.
Neighbors are helping one another, and the ice storm has not been linked to fires, injuries or deaths in Hampstead, Beaudoin said.
Schools will remain closed today and tomorrow.
Nearly half of the town's residents remain without power.
But all major roads around town are open and being cleared for utility crews.
Kingston police Chief Donald Briggs called in the National Guard to help with nighttime patrols around town.
Sanborn Regional High School continues to serve as a shelter for area residents, operated by the American Red Cross. The shelter also can accommodate pets.
Police, fire and public works employees did door-to-door checks on residents in the Great Pond Park area, which was hit especially hard by the storm.
Briggs said leaflets have been posted at residents' homes so they know where they can get local services. It still could be several days before all residents get their power back.
Sixty percent of the residents remained without power yesterday afternoon. Utility crews are working in town, but some residents could wait a few days for the lights to come back on.
All streets, except for five side roads, are passable, fire Chief Kevin MacCaffrie said. Some flooding has occurred on Parmenter and Auburn roads.
One serious weekend fire, which displaced a family, was linked to the ice storm. A bed in an apartment complex caught fire due to an unattended candle. MacCaffrie did not have details.
Also over the weekend, firefighters responded to several minor fires — one started by candles, one electrical fire, and two fires started by space heaters.
Between Friday and Sunday night, firefighters treated five people at three different locations for carbon monoxide poisoning. The two most serious cases were treated inside a hyperbaric chamber at Catholic Medical Center in Manchester on Friday night, but returned home later that evening. Firefighters took a third patient to a local hospital and treated two others at the scene.
Multiple calls have come from people with water in their basement because their sump pumps lost power.
The state's largest shelter at the Londonderry High School gym stayed open yesterday for anyone in need of a shower, hot food or overnight accommodations. Eighty-five people were using the shelter yesterday afternoon.
School is canceled today. Afternoon and evening activities also are canceled.
Almost the entire community remains without power except for a branch of New Boston Road and Main Street, according to Newton police Chief Larry Streeter.
"The rest of the town is without power and there's very little infrastructure here," he said. "Everybody here depends on electricity for water and heat. We've been going — police, fire, and the Highway Department — literally door-to-door, checking on people, making sure everyone is all right."
Streeter said residents have been largely resilient. Residents can go to the shelter at Sanborn Regional High School in Kingston.
The Highway Department has taken an inventory of all damages to the power lines and provided it to Unitil. Streeter said there's no estimate when power could be restored.
Pelham emergency management is operating and will take requests for help either in person at the fire station at 8 Old Bridge St., or by phone at 635-2703.
It can help with drinking water, water for flushing, food, shelter and pumping basements.
Outages are still spread throughout town and there's no estimate on when power will be restored. All major roads, including Route 38, have been cleared and power has slowly been restored to main roads in town, police said.
National Grid still is repairing several neighborhoods that have been without power since Thursday, but all roads have been cleared by public works crews. Public Service of New Hampshire reported 32 outages as of last night.
Pelham Elementary School and Pelham Memorial School have postponed their holiday concerts. They will be rescheduled in January. Pelham High School's holiday concert will take place Thursday — if school is in session that day.
Rescue workers have responded to several calls for carbon monoxide and safety problems related to improperly used generators, but no storm-related deaths are being reported. Two people were treated at a local hospital for carbon monoxide poisoning.
About 27 percent of households are still in the dark, and there is concern people will take risks to stay warm as they become frustrated with the situation, Town Manager Sean Fitzgerald said.
The shelter at Sanborn Regional High School in Kingston is open and pets will be allowed to stay in the shelter with their owners. On Sunday night, 54 Plaistow residents spent the night in the shelter, Fitzgerald said.
Most roads are passable, but downed power wires still pose hazards, and cones and barriers are being used to direct drivers away from trouble spots. Many gas stations and stores have reopened.
Residents are urged to keep records of losses and costs associated with the ice storm, so they can claim reimbursement from their insurance or from the government if federal funds materialize, he said.
People also are being asked not to burn debris. The town will find a way for residents to dispose of fallen trees and branches.
Schools are closed today.
About 2,900 residents remained without power as of last night, Town Manager Jonathan Sistare said.
"It's going to take a number of days. The remaining people will take longer because most of them are home connections and those take longer to restore," Sistare said. "There's no formal estimate from National Grid."
The town's transfer station is going to remain open until 7 p.m. every night this week and will be open on Sunday.
"We're asking people to continue to be patient," Sistare said. "We got a lot of calls today at Town Hall, with people asking when is their power coming back. Every effort is being made by the power company to restore it. It will come back on as soon as possible."
Public works crews have cleared all major roads and expect to spend the next two days disposing of wood and debris along the roadsides.
The center of town and several main roads have had their power restored. Public works crews also worked to switch the town's water supply to Canobie Lake and made sure the sewer lift station's generators were filled with fuel.
Schools are expected to be back in session today.
Close to half the town still was without power last night as crews from PSNH and Unitil worked to repair downed lines.
"We're starting to get some of the power back," fire Capt. Ken Scipione said. "We're hopeful things will be back to normal in the next 24 to 48 hours."
Most roads in town are now drivable, with some low-hanging wires. No major emergency issues have been reported, Scipione said.
School will be closed today.
The last closed road, Searles Road, opened yesterday afternoon, police Sgt. Carl Wagner said.
As of 5 p.m. yesterday, PSNH reported 2,616 Windham customers still were without power.
Wagner said there was no timetable as to when power will be fully restored, but progress has been made. Businesses in the north end on Route 111 had their power restored, he said.
The shelter that had been operating at Windham Center School was closed Sunday because so few people were using it. Residents may seek shelter at Nashua South High School.
