Well, I wouldn't be surprised. I was told all the Brockton stations
were knocked off the air and one is still not back on yet. I assume you
can call WUMB tomorrow and ask what is going on. There weren't a lot of
power outages in Quincy (although our cable was down for over a day) but
a couple of neighborhoods did suffer falling tree branches and downed
power lines. I am told the building that houses the Quincy
Patriot-Ledger was affected by the storm, so maybe WUMB was too.
