As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 3,000 National Grid customers were still without power.
BROCKTON — The number of area residents without power Wednesday from another nor'easter has increased throughout the day.
As of Wednesday morning, less than 3,000 people were without power in the region, but that number increased to more than 3,100 National Grid customers as of 2:30 p.m., due to new outages in Bridgewater.
The Brockton region was slammed by Winter Storm Skylar on Tuesday, dropping more than 18 inches of snow in most local communities.
The heavy, wet snow combined with wind gusts in excess of 50 miles per hour brought trees, utility poles and wires down across the area.
As of 10 a.m. on Wednesday, more than 2,800 National Grid customers were still without power in the region, with Plymouth County once again being affected the most. That included 498 customers in Bridgewater at the time.
But a new outage in Bridgewater has caused 1,897 customers to be without power.
The rest of the outages include 497 in East Bridgewater, 332 in Easton, 188 in Brockton, 157 in Hanson, 16 in Stoughton and 15 in Whitman, as of 2:30 p.m.
National Grid classified Tuesday's storm as a "Type 3" event, meaning restoration can take up to 72 hours.
The power outages come after thousands were without power, many for days, after the first nor'easter of March. More lost power again with last week's second nor'easter.
