An estimated 2,150 customers in Dobbs Ferry, 1,991 customers in Hastings and 1,554 customers in Ardsley were without power at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. Con Edison crews had no timetable for when power would be restored.

RIVERTOWNS, N.Y. – Hurricane Sandy wiped out power to roughly half of all Rivertowns customers as of Tuesday morning, according to Con Edison reports.

An estimated 4,606 out of 9,375 customers in Dobbs Ferry, Hastings and Ardsley were without power at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to Con Edison reports. In Dobbs Ferry, about 1,551 out of 4,153 customers were without power. There were 1,702 out of 3,436 homes in Hastings without power. In addition, 1,353 out of 1,786 homes in Ardsley were without power Tuesday morning, according to Con Edison reports.

Con Edison officials could not determine Tuesday morning when a majority of the outages would be repaired.

Authorities said the height of the storm was expected to hit the area late Monday, but that intermittent power outages could be expected all day Monday and Tuesday. Roughly 163,824 out of 348,198 customers throughout Westchester County were without power Tuesday morning.

More than 650,000 customers in New York City and Westchester County lost power due to Hurricane Sandy, Con Edison representatives said early Tuesday.

“This is the largest storm-related outage in our history,” said Con Edison Senior Vice President for Electric Operations John Miksad in a press release. The company noted that the previous record was “more than 200,000 customers affected by Hurricane Irene in 2011,” according to the release.

Miksad noted that crews would need to assess damage prior making to repairs, adding that “low-lying areas of New York City and Westchester County remained under water,” according to the release.

Officials noted that more than 180 roads closed throughout Westchester County.
