MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Electricity in all neighborhoods in the Village of Mamaroneck have been restored as of Wednesday, but some residents like Jaime Veve are still in the dark.
Veve won't have power until a damaged electrical unit in his basement, which received seven feet of flood water, he said. He's not the only one on First Street to have that issue.
Con Edison is checking homes for any storm-damaged electrical or gas units that could cause a safety risk, Village Manager Richard Slingerland said.
Veve, along with other residents whose service has been shut off by Con Edison, must hire an electrician to certify that they inspected the damaged electrical or plumbing equipment and determine it is safe to use. Then, the building inspector's office has to inspect it to confirm it is safe.
The town still had 70 residents without power Thursday, Town Administrator Stephen Altieri said. Several calls have been made to the Larchmont Mayor Josh Mandell, who has been unavailable while on vacation.
