Power Watch: Day 13
11 Nov, 2012
By Polly Kreisman
Almost two weeks since Hurricane Sandy stormed through the area, some towns and villages are close to almost normal power conditions.
In the Town of Mamaroneck, Supervisor Nancy Seligson wrote to residents, “(We) suffered the worst damage in history from Storm Sandy. Over 70 % of the community lost power and over 70 roads were closed just 8 days ago. Today we have only 1 roads closed and close to 80% of residents have their power restored. We know that it has not been fast enough and we know it’s not complete enough, but we are lucky compared to other many communities in the County who still have over half of their residents without power and many roads closed.”
Village of Mamaroneck- Approximately 200 customers still without power
Larchmont- The Village rescinded its “state of emergency” Thursday. Its website says “there are still some residents without power.”
Rye- The City reported Sunday 9 outages in the City of Rye, down from an original count of 4,513. Oakland Beach Avenue is closed east of Milton Road due to a low hanging high voltage wire. Because repair of that wire will be a labor-intensive operation, it has been deferred so that resources can be devoted to the residential restoration effort. All other roads are open.
New Rochelle- State of Emergency Continues; FEMA and NYS Finance Representatives at New Rochelle Public Library Saturday/Sunday, Red Cross to Distribute supplies at City Hall Parking Lot Saturday and Sunday 10AM-4PM
Scarsdale- An estimated 85 Scarsdale residents and 294 Greenburgh residents are still without power.
