John Godfrey reports he and other Forest Hills residents are struggling to understand how a planned Neversource repair outage that was supposed to end by morning, then by 6 p.m.. is now scheduled to end at midnight - 21 hours after it started.

City Councilor Matt O'Malley (Jamaica Plain/West Roxbury) says he shares residents' "frustration with the lack of communication throughout the day," but says that long term, the work will mean fewer problems in the future.
