Power Crews, Massachusetts Residents Bracing for Third Nor'easter in March



    Power Will Be Fully Restored Just in Time for Next Storm

    Many Massaschusetts and Connecticut residents just had their power restored after their last nor'easter, and now they are facing a third nor'easter that could leave them in the dark again.

    Power crews are still trying to restore power in some homes from the last nor'easter, and they're getting close, but many in New England are now preparing for another round of power outages.

    Kamee Paci just got her power back on after the last nor'easter left her in the dark for several days. 

    The thought of another one coming through is nerve wracking, she says.

    As of late Sunday afternoon, 17-percent of her Boxford, Massachusetts community is still without power, which is more than 500 customers.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    The weather forecast is calling for another nor'easter, the third in March, overnight Monday into Tuesday, bringing snow to much of Massachusetts, impacting the morning and afternoon commutes.

    The Boston area is bracing for up to a foot of snow.

    While crews are getting closer to restoring all the power in Boxford, they could be coming back in a few days.

    The risk of coastal flooding is expected to be lower than the last nor'easter.
