CON EDISON CREWS RESPONDING TO STORM OUTAGES
NEW YORK -- Con Edison crews continue working around the clock responding to power outages caused by the April nor’easter that began pounding the New York area Sunday. The company reported scattered outages throughout its service area, with the bulk of the outages located along coastal communities in Westchester County.
At the request of local officials and to ensure safety, Con Edison has temporarily interrupted electric and/or gas service to 3,000 business and residential customers affected by flooding in the Cities of Rye, Yonkers and New Rochelle, Town and Village of Mamaroneck, and Villages of Larchmont, Bronxville and Scarsdale. Rising water that comes into contact with equipment in basements and other areas can result in hazardous conditions.
Con Edison is prepared to begin restoring service to those residents at the direction of municipal officials in the affected areas. These residents will need to coordinate with their local officials to restore services once flooding has subsided.
Customers who have lost power, or who are experiencing service problems, should call 1-800-75-CONED. They can also report service problems online at www.conEd.com
