Manhole covers blow off in Salem

“It’s just going to be a matter of when they give us the all clear that we can vent the basements and let the people back in,” Francis said. “But they’re going to be without power for a while, so maybe the biggest concern is no heat for the night and some of these places having frozen pipes and stuff like that. That could be a big concern.”

The manhole covers have been put back in place, and teams are working to determine the exact cause.
