DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. ? Dobbs Ferry Mayor Hartley Connett said 464 Con Edison customers were still without power Monday afternoon, down from a peak of 3,600.

"The village is aware of the pockets throughout the village still without power," Connett said. "The public safety, DPW and emergency departments are working as best they can with the utility and authorities to get power back to everyone."

Connett also reminded customers to report outages to the Dobbs Ferry Police Department at 693-5500. If a service line to your home has been damaged (or pulled down), it needs to be fixed by an electrician before Con Ed will return power to your property.

The village has made the Embassy Center available on request as a warming center up to 11 p.m. each evening. Residents can recharge batteries, use the facilities or watch television there. Call the Dobbs Ferry Fire Department at 693-5500 if you would like to use the center or need assistance.

"It has been incredible how many residents have offered their homes to friends and neighbors to help," Connett said. "It has made a big difference for many people." The Dobbs Ferry School district announced the library at the high school campus will have extended hours on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so students without power can do homework in a warm environment. Families are welcome also to access the Internet and join their children. The library will remain open until 7:30 p.m.
