CON EDISON ADDS 2nd LOCATION FOR DRY ICE IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY TODAY

NEW YORK – Con Edison will make dry ice available at two locations today to Westchester residents still without power following Tuesday night’s storm, as over 300 crews and contractors continue working on service restoration.

Distribution began at 7 a.m. in the Sears parking lot at the Cross County Shopping Center in Yonkers.

Bags of dry ice also will be distributed starting at 9 a.m. today at Shonnard Place and Park Avenue, Yonkers.

Dry ice distribution will end after 6 p.m.

For residents picking up dry ice, instructions for safe handling and disposal are printed on the paper bag containing the ice. Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide and should be used only in well-ventilated areas. Keep children and pets safely away.

Customers can 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).  They can also get estimated restoration times online.  When reporting an outage, customers should have their Con Edison account number available, if possible, and report whether their neighbors also have lost power.
