OSSINING, N.Y. – More than 1,700 Ossining and Briarcliff Manor customers remained without power Tuesday morning and it could be more than a week before power is restored.
An estimated 330 out of 2,307 in the Town of Ossining, 257 out of 8,980 in the Village of Ossining and 1,135 out of 2,964 in Briarcliff Manor were without power at 6 a.m. Tuesday, according to Con Edison reports. While the height of the storm passed through a week ago and more than 840,000 customers have had power restored, most Westchester areas listed Sunday, Nov. 11 as an estimated restoration date, according to Con Edison reports.
As of Tuesday morning, Con Edison representatives said approximately 120,000 customers were without electricity, out of an estimated 960,000 affected. That included approximately 1,400 out in Manhattan, 27,400 in Queens, 21,100 in Brooklyn, 12,000 in Staten Island and 6,000 in the Bronx. In Westchester County, the company reported 52,868 customers out of service, while approximately 170,000 customers had their service restored in the last week.
Officials said they expected to restore the “vast majority of those affected by Hurricane Sandy by the weekend,” according to a press release.
“While Con Edison continues to return electricity to customers since Hurricane Sandy moved out, the company is monitoring the Nor'easter forecast for Wednesday,” officials said in a press release Monday night. “The expected high winds and heavy rains could delay restorations and may cause additional outages.”
