Mayor's Office: Beacon Hill Fared Better Than Much of City During Sandy

Beacon Hill suffered tree damage during Monday's storm but not as intensively as other parts of Boston.

Numbers released from the mayor's office Tuesday morning show that damage on Beacon Hill from Monday's storm was relatively minor. 

"Beacon Hill and Back Bay fared very well compared to the rest of the city," a spokeswoman for the mayor told Patch today. 

Of the 1,065 reports the office fielded from across the city, 13 were from Beacon Hill. Eleven of those concerned downed or broken trees and one was about a downed electrical wire. 

The numbers reflect the number of calls, not the number of incidents. In other words, there could be several calls about one incident. 

"Trees and downed wires were the two most reported because it was really a wind rather than a rain issue," the spokeswoman said.

Citywide, 610 calls came in for trees. Dorchester was the hardest hit, followed by West Roxbury and Roxbury, the spokeswoman said. 

There were no injuries reported in the city and only two reports of residential or commercial flooding. Although the mayor's office received 40 reports of roadway flooding, as of this morning there is no significant flooding that is preventing people from traveling. 

Although up to 2 percent of Boston was without power last night, NSTAR was quick to respond and as of 8 a.m. Tuesday it reported that 181 Boston households, or .65 percent of its Boston customers, remained without power.
