The following is an update from Mayor Miriam Levitt Flisser on the Village's Hurricane recovery effort:
Village officials continue to have daily conference calls with the Westchester County Office of Emergency Management and Con Edison. Our persistent requests are for additional crews to cut power lines so village crews may clear roadways.
We are in direct contact with Con Ed to reinforce the severity of power outages and the necessity for more crews to be dispatched. Thirteen roadways remain closed. There are four Con Ed crews in town working with village crews to open the remaining streets still blocked by electrical power lines.
49% or 2,982 of 6,025 customers in the Village are without power, down from 3,894 yesterday. Con Ed reports the date of November 9-11 for full county-wide restoration. Con Ed restoration crews are working 24 hours to restore power.
A regional emergency shelter is at the Albert Leonard Middle School, 25 Gerard Lane, New Rochelle. The Scarsdale Public Library is available as a warming station with free coffee and movies in the Scott Room. Residents may charge their cell phones and other electronic devices. Library hours are 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday - Friday.
Information on emergency pet shelters is available by calling 211.
All polling places are open and residents are encouraged to vote.
The village's published sanitation schedule is in effect. There is no sanitation pick-up today. Residents may bring their garbage to the Sanitation yard until 3:00 p.m. today.
Department of Public Works crews are preparing for the upcoming storm by clearing sensitive areas.
We continue to work to restore power and open roads.
Please call the Emergency Operations Center at 914-722-1150 for storm related issues.
