MAMARONECK, N.Y. – About 2,000 customers were without power in Mamaroneck Thursday morning following a Nor’easter that knocked out electricity to more homes throughout Westcheser and delayed Con Edison’s restorations.

An estimated 856 out of 8,704 Con Edison customers in the Village of Mamaroneck were without power at 5:30 a.m. Thursday, up from 828 Wednesday morning.  1,114 out of 5,259 in the Town of Mamaroneck were without power Thursday, down from 1,199 Wednesday morning.

Con Edison reported approximately 34,101 of its 348,198 Westchester customers out of service as of Thursday morning down from 36,734 Wednesday morning.

Crews were working to restore 67,000 customers in New York City and Westchester County when the nor-easter hit, knocking out power to 55,000 customers in both areas. Crews repairing overhead equipment from Hurricane Sandy outages were delayed, unable to work safely in high winds.

Con Edison crews, mutual aid workers and contractors have restored service to about 957,000 customers from both storms. Crews have been responding to more than 100,000 downed wires and are working with emergency services personnel to open blocked roads.

Customers can report downed power lines, outages, and check service restoration status by computer or mobile device at www.conEd.com. They also can call 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633). Customers who report outages will be called by Con Edison with their estimated restoration times as they become available, according to the release.

Supposedly our local officials are trying to support those of us looking at potentially 2 weeks without power. Called Con-ed. Was told that because our pocket is only 16 houses, we will be placed near the end of the list. Called the county. Despite the valiant image of Astorino on the county website, the receptionist said "leave me alone". They say the issues are not resource based because the nature of our issues are different than the tragic areas of flooding. OK,, but if that is true why are there no trucks on the streets and why was a live transformer left on Murray Ave to spark all day, closing streets? Everyone complains, but what is the best way to pool our complaints into a more cohesive demand to up the resources?
