CON EDISON RESTORES WESTCHESTER CUSTOMERS
NEW YORK – Approximately 450 crews working around the clock have restored electrical service to the 30,000 customers who lost power from violent storms that battered Westchester County late Wednesday.
Safety was the No. 1 priority for the men and women of Con Edison as they had to work around hundreds of downed trees and scores of blocked roads.
Customer service representatives distributed more than 13,000 pounds of dry ice to Westchester residents who lost their electricity in the storm.
The company urges customers to report power interruptions or service problems online at www.conEd.com, or by calling Con Edison’s toll-free customer service number 1-800-75-CON ED (1-800-752-6633). When reporting an outage, customers should have their Con Edison account number available, if possible, and report whether their neighbors have also lost power.
