DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. - Dobbs Ferry Mayor Hartley Connett released an update on power restoration Wednesday and also advised residents to be aware of possible outages that may come as a result of a storm Wednesday and Thursday.
"In Dobbs Ferry, there are a few residents still without service," Connett said. "There was decent restoration progress made Tuesday, but not everyone is back yet. The departments are doing everything possible to keep the Con Ed crews available and directed to getting remaining residences without power restored."
Con Edison said the current storm may cause more outages, but that crews working on around-the-clock restorations from Hurricane Sandy will be getting more help Wednesday when 300 additional workers arrive in time for the nor’easter’s arrival.
"As advised previously, the new weather system approaching (now arriving) will bring rain and heavy winds that could down trees into power lines," Connett said. "The new storm could delay Con Edison’s customer restorations. Crews repairing overhead lines and equipment cannot work in high winds."
The Village will continue to make the Embassy Center available up to 11 p.m. for any residents who wish to use it as a warming place or to use the facilities to charge batteries or watch TV. Please contact the police at 693-5500 for access to the center or any other information.
