Muggy Weather & Strong Thunderstorms Rolling In Early This Week
Con Edison Warns Do Not Go Near Downed Wires
As muggy weather and high temperatures return today, Con Edison reminds customers to use energy wisely while company crews prepare for thunderstorms and strong winds expected to hit our region Tuesday.
Strong winds from the storms could knock trees and branches into power lines, causing customers to lose power. Do not go near or touch downed power lines, they may be live. If you see downed wires, call your local police department or 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633). Watch this video to learn more about how we restore power.
