RIVERTOWNS, N.Y. – Power outages in Ardsley have been reduced to just five of nearly 1,800 customers Thursday morning, a week-and-a-half after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the area.
Dobbs Ferry and Hastings-on-Hudson power outages remained mostly unchanged from Wednesday. The nor’easter that blew through overnight did not drive up the number of outages.
On Wednesday at midday, Con Edison reported that 22 of its 1,786 customers in Ardsley were without power. The utility estimated that the remaining five Ardsley customers would have power back by midnight Sunday.
In Dobbs Ferry and Hastings, 9 percent of Con Ed customers were still in the dark, mostly unchanged from Wednesday midday. Of Dobbs Ferry’s 4,153 Con Ed customers, 221 were without power at 6 a.m. Thursday morning. Of Hastings’ 3,436 customers, 458 did not have electricity.
Con Ed estimated that most of Dobbs Ferry would get electricity back by midnight Sunday, and Hastings would be turned back on by midnight Friday.
Across Westchester, about 10 percent of Con Ed’s nearly 350,000 customers were without power at 6 a.m. Thursday. That’s 34,033 customers in the dark, down from 36,734 Wednesday morning.
Con Ed officials said Wednesday’s nor’easter could delay work because crews repairing overhead equipment cannot work safely in high winds.
