We are hearing that many off-campus students are without power this morning.

A resident of the Elmhurst told us that buildings along Elm Street, including the Elmhurst and the heavyweight crew house, lost power at around 5:30 a.m. and are still in the dark as of 11:12 a.m.

Meanwhile, residents of Howe Street are also reporting that they lost power. As of 11:23 a.m. lights are out in some houses on that street, but street lights are on and Mamoun’s has power and is open for business.

That said, students who live at Edgewood Avenue and Park Street, 1012 Chapel Street and the Cambridge Oxford Apartments on High Street have all reported having power.

Let us know if you lost power.

Update: 12:10 p.m.

We’ve heard that students in the Pi Phi house on Crown Street still have power too. But two residents of different houses on Lynwood has said that their power has been out since this morning. Kat Lau ’13 told our reporter Emily Foxhall that a fallen tree appears to be pulling down the power lines.
