MAMARONECK, N.Y. – It could take a week for electricity to be restored to the approximately half to two-thirds of customers without power in the Village of Mamaroneck and the greater New York Metropolitan area, the village announced Tuesday in an email.
There were still 4,675 out of 8,704 Con Edison customers without power Tuesday in the Village of Mamaroneck, including the village’s government offices. Consequently, the village’s phone lines have been affected, including cell phones.
There are several hundred downed trees and tree limbs in the village, which will take a couple of days to cut and clear from roads, Village Manager Richard Slingerland said in an email announcement.
The village will leave downed trees and limbs at the location, then make a second sweep to collect the debris, which will take a few weeks.
As a result, the village is strongly recommending parents keep their kids home on Halloween to avoid the aftermath of the storm.
Coastal flooding caused significant damage to parks and fields, including Harbor Island Park, the Pavilion and Sportime Tennis, which will remain closed through at least the end of the week.
