Five Things to Know: Post-Sandy Edition

Essential daily information at a glance, including practical information for the day after the hurricane.

1. Forecast: Numerous showers. Highs in the upper 60s. Southeast winds 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. Chance of rain 70 percent.

2. Waking Up to Storm Damage?: If you have flooding, downed trees and branches, call 311 and/or the Mayor's Hotline at 617-635-4500. To report a power outage, contact NSTAR at 800-592-2000 or online.

3. School's Open, T is running: Boston Public Schools are open today and the T has pretty much resumed a normal schedule (except for the commuter rail Providence line). Even so, the T advises you to expect delays here and there Tuesday morning.

4. Share Your Experience: The storm could have been a lot worse for us, but it did have some high-profile effects. For instance, it ripped down a big billboard across from the Forest Hills T. Share photos or video of your experience on this thread.

5. A Political Hurricane for JP: Many readers wrote to me on Monday about a City Council redistricting plan that would divide JP.
