OSSINING, N.Y. - More than 4,000 residents in Ossining and Briarcliff Manor lost power Monday night as Hurricane Sandy blew through Westchester.
Con Edison officials said Monday evening they would be unable to address a majority of the outages during the worst of Hurricane Sandy. About 1,580 residents on Spring Street in downtown Ossining lost power Monday evening. An additional 1,300 residents on Acker Avenue, 495 on Tappan Terrace, 352 Havell Street and 260 residents along Route 9A were also without power Monday night, according to Con Edison reports. Authorities said the height of the storm was expected to hit the area later in the evening, but that intermittent power outages could be expected all day Monday and Tuesday.
"At this point, any outages are going to be storm related," said Allan Drury. "We're seeing outages being reported throughout New York City and throughout Westchester."
Several outages were repaired Monday afternoon but others would remain out indefinitely while the hurricane gained strength, Con Edison officials reported .
"We're restoring people now and we'll continue to do so as long as conditions are safe for us to be out there," Drury said. "With all of the outages, we will do our best to work as quickly as possible to restore power as long as those repairs can be made safely."
