Downed power line closes part of NH's Kancamagus

LINCOLN, N.H. (AP) -- Crews are working to reopen a section of Kancamagus Highway and restore power to 1,700 customers in Lincoln, N.H., after a power line came down across the road.

Loon Mountain was among those losing power and was closed for the day. Loon marketing director Molly Mahar said the power outage occurred at about 5 a.m., so no skiers were left stranded. She said she can't remember the last time the ski area closed altogether.

"The good news is that it wasn't a weekend day and it's a very cold day," she said, noting the cold would have kept many skiers away.

Mahar says she expected the power to return mid-afternoon and the mountain to be open as usual Friday.

Police helped to detour vehicles around the closed section of the Kancamagus.

New Hampshire Electric Cooperative believes the very cold temperatures overnight may have caused wires attached to the pole to contract, putting extra tension on the pole, which is about a quarter-mile from Loon Mountain. A new pole was being set.
