Hurricane Sandy has made folks throughout Westchester County miserable and certainly tested the patience of the more than 6,000 folks around Scarsdale still without power Thursday.
In the Village of Scarsdale, 4,400 residents do not have power. In Greenville, Edgemont and the Scarsdale zip code, that is a total of 6,000-plus Thursday waiting to have the lights turned back on.
As of 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Con Edison has no time estimate for when wires will be repaired and when the power will be restored. All locations in the Scarsdale area are listed as pending by Con Edison.
The Village of Scarsdale told residents yesterday to expect the power to be out for seven to 10 days, with only one Con Ed crew working in the Village.
Con Edison customers without power should be sure to report the outage to the utility company. Call Con Edison at 1-800-75-CONED or report the outage online at http://www.coned.com/sm/
According to the Village of Scarsdale, calling to report the outage will register the complaint in the Con Ed database. Even if a neighbor already called, folks must report each individual outage to register it in the system.
