For Immediate Release: August 15, 2003 — 9:00 a.m.


Con Edison's power restoration continued through the night, with electricity returned to nearly 1.5 million of its 3.1 million customers by 8:30 a.m. today. There is now power to all of Staten Island, more than half of Westchester County and the Bronx, and parts of Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.

With today's weather forecast for continued hot and humid weather, we are urging customers with power to defer the use of major appliances. People still waiting for their power to be restored should turn all appliances to the "off" position to help ensure a smooth restoration process.

The company remains in close contact with the New York City Office of Emergency Management and the Westchester County Office of Disaster and Emergency Services.
