WPCNR THE POWER STORY. By John F. Bailey. March 4, 2018 2:30 PM:
Con Edison is promising on their Storm Center website that all power will be restored across Westchester County by noon Tuesday. As of noon with restoration efforts beginning this morning, Con Edison still reports 4, 001 Outages in Westchester County and the 5 boroughs of New York City. They have restored power to 15,003 Customers (meaning one power meter per customer, with the possibility as several hundred to a meter.) Power is still off for 57,593 customers in the Westchester and NYC boroughs.
At 2:15 PM, a spokesperson for Con Edison, told WPCNR 53,000 Westchester Customers remain to be restored to power, down from 72,000 yesterday and 62,000 earlier today.
The increase in Customers without power in the Westchester towns listed below may be because of switching operations. She said the customers out of power in Westchester numbers are going down, not up.
However watching the Outage numbers and the Customers Out Numbers changing on the Con Edison Storm may, it appears the number of outages are outdistancing the restorations at a troubling pace.
The power outages appear more than they were yesterday. The upper reaches of the county, Peekskill, Ossining, Shrub Oak, Cortland are rife with power outages. The South Shore of the Ryes, the Mamaroneck-Larchmont area and Mount Vernon have grown in outages, apparently now being reported or discovered.
Mamaroneck Larchmont has the most Customers without power, 5,351; Chapaqua has 2,865 powerless Customers; Thornwood, 2,987; Mount Vernon east and west of the Bronx River Parkway, 1,808; Peekskill, yesterday’s most devasted power grid is up 1,000 customers without power to 3,069: The Rye, Rye Brook area has 2,906 Customers without power. Hartsdale 2.906.
In White Plains, as of noon, Sunday, recovery has been partially achieved, there are 85 outages with 118 customers (one meter per customer) out of service. The numbers continue to fluctuate up and down as more outages are discovered and some are restored, it should be noted in the following towns and villages
