MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Trucks from the Department of Public Works, Con Edison and private contractors have been a common sight around Mamaroneck, which Town Administrator Stephen Altieri said is officially in "clean-up mode" four days after last weekend's powerful snowstorm.
In the town, 216 Con Ed customers remain without power, according to the utility's outage map on its website . Altieri said those numbers aren't always accurate, but are in the general range of the real number. The Village of Mamaroneck has 27 and Larchmont has two Con Ed customers without power.
"We know that a number of people were restored last evening," Altieri said. "Con Edison has told us that the balance should restored by midnight tonight." The Oct. 29 nor'easter forced between 15 and 20 road closures Saturday, all of which have been reopened. Yesterday, the town reopened the last four roads, Ridgeway and Dundee Road and Forest and Edgewood Avenues.
"Other than that, we're in cleanup mode trying to pick up all the storm debris that fell into the streets and people's yards," Altieri said. Many residents have also hired private contractors to trim their trees that extend to their power lines.
The town continues to advise all residents to be aware of the danger of downed power lines. Always assume that a downed wire is live and poses a hazard. The town opened a warming center at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Building at 1288 Boston Post Road Monday, which will remain open as long as demand warrants it.
