Some roads are still partially closed Friday morning after severe weather hit the Tarrytowns area.
Church Street in Tarrytown, as well as College Avenue and Sleepy Hollow Road between Webber Rd and the Mt Pleasant line remain blocked off to traffic after trees and power lines came down Thursday night.
Con Edison employees were out on College Avenue in Sleepy Hollow Friday morning, working on the accident site to replace damaged equipment. Parts of a massive 30-35 foot tree that fell still needed to be cleared away. One of the parked vehicles that had been hit and severely damaged by the falling tree was still left on the street as of late morning.
According to Sleepy Hollow Police Chief Gregory Camp, SHPD responded to three downed trees Thursday night. The downed tree on College Avenue caused damage to three vehicles around 5:45 p.m.: one destroyed, one heavily damaged and one with minor damage. Camp reported that they had received reports of a possible fire, but a transformer explosion and arcing wires started no residential fires.
Camp also noted that a tree fell around 6:30 p.m. on Sleepy Hollow Road between Webber Road and the Mount Pleasant Line. The tree blocked the roadway and was entangled in wires. Another tree fell in a front yard on Fremont Road around 7:30 p.m., but no damages were reported.
Sleepy Hollow police also responded to a fire report Thursday night at 404 Old Broadway around 6:30 p.m., but the heavy smoke and small fire had been caused by food left on a stove in a second floor apartment.
Tarrytown Police noted that they did not respond to any accidents related to the storm, although a power outage was reported in Hamilton Place and a branch was down at 10 Park Avenue. The Church Street accident was reported to ConEdison.
Irvington Police saw four instances of downed power lines and trees, but no roads were closed. The accidents happened on a section of Meadowbrook Lane and Fargo Lane; the intersection of Erie Street and Roland Road; the intersection of Maple Street and Station Road; and on Ardsley Avenue West.
