I am a resident off annaquatucket rd that was w/o power for 3 days because of a piece of wire that was only 1 foot long. Everytime the wind blows more than 30 miles an hour we loose power because the power line that supply this area are in the woods of prospect and boston neck rd( it happened when irene came into town also). The power company needs to do something about where these lines are and cut down all the trees that have grown around them, they placed these lines in this area because it was the cheapest thing to do at the time and now need to step up and fix this problem !!!!!!!!!!
