YORKTOWN, N.Y.--Thousands of Yorktown residents will wake up Wednesday to yet another day without power.
As of Tuesday night, 1,773 out of 8,173 Con Edison customers were without power, with an estimated restoration time of Sept. 1 at 11:59 p.m. This is down from 2,186 Con Edison customers who were without power Monday night.
For NYSEG customers, 3,750 were without power out of 6,408. That's down from the 4,700 who were without power as of Monday.
According to Supervisor Susan Siegel, restoration for NYSEG customers could be a multi-day effort.
They are still doing their assessment, and can't give an estimate of restoration until they finish the assessment. They repeated that restoration is likely to be a multi-day effort and may go into next week." she said in an email. "Once they complete their assessment, information should be on their web site with estimated restoration times. Priority will be given to nursing homes and other critical care centers, then to areas with the largest populations first.
Town Hall is still also without power, though operating on a generator.
There are still downed wires that have to be checked by NYSEG before our highway crews can deal with the trees, Siegel said.Siegel said the Environmental Department will begin picking up brush.However, residents must cut all brush into four-inch lengths that are no thicker than five inches. All brush must be bundled and brought to the curb.
Dry ice has been in short supply but Siegel said Yorktown will have additional, though limited, supplies although limited. It is being offered at at 10 am the rear of the Triangle Shopping Center. Those picking up the dry ice should bring gloves and a container to hold it.
Residents must call the department at 914-962-3612 to be put on the list for pick up. Siegel also said residents in section five are scheduled for bulk trash pickup this week.
