TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Nearly 200 Con Edison customers still remained without power in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow Thursday morning, a week-and-a-half after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the area. Wednesday’s nor’easter did not appear to have driven the number of outages back up.
Con Edison said that 138 of 5,217 Con Edison customers in Tarrytown, and 50 of 3,515 customers in Sleepy Hollow, were without power at 6 a.m. Thursday, nearly unchanged from Wednesday morning. The utility estimated that most Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow customers would have power back by midnight Friday.
Across Westchester, about 10 percent of Con Ed’s nearly 350,000 customers were without power at 6 a.m. Thursday. That’s 34,033 customers in the dark, down from 36,734 Wednesday morning.
Con Ed officials said Wednesday’s nor’easter could delay their work because crews repairing overhead equipment cannot work safely in high winds.
