SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. More than 1,000 residents remained without power Sunday after an early snowstorm blanketed Sleepy Hollow in white and downed trees, limbs and power lines.
Con Edison estimates 1,124 residents in the Sleepy Hollow Manor, Philipse Manor, Webber Park and inter-village areas have lost power due to the storm, with the majority of power outages centered around Pocantico Street, where a tree branch fell onto wires. Power is expected to be restored by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday.
The village cancelled its Haunted Hayride and Block Party, which had been rescheduled for Sunday night. Sleepy Hollow Mayor Ken Wray said there were continuing safety concerns including broken limbs and branches that are still hanging from trees along the route.
Warner Library was filled on Sunday afternoon with residents who had lost power and needed to charge their electronics. Sleepy Hollow Police reported only Pocantico Street was closed as of 4 p.m. in the village.
Wray noted that workers in the Department of Public Works had been clearing roads and dealing with the storm's aftereffects since it hit.
There are many days of work ahead of them to finish the storm clean-up, he said.
