National Grid says that power is out to more than 270,000 of its 480,000 Rhode Island customers.

The utility company has 6,500 people working in Rhode Island today from linemen to engineers and phone operators to handle the damage being done by Hurricane Irene, spokesman David Graves told WPRI-TV.

There are also 80 private contractor crews assisting the National Grid repair operations, many coming from the Midwest.
