EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – More than 2,000 Eastchester customers remained without power Tuesday morning and it could be more than a week before power is restored.

An estimated 2,469 out of 7,900 customers in Eastchester were without power at 6 a.m. Tuesday, according to Con Edison reports.

While the height of the storm passed through a week ago and more than 840,000 customers have had power restored, most Westchester areas listed Sunday, Nov. 11 as an estimated restoration date, according to Con Edison reports.

As of Tuesday morning, Con Edison representatives said approximately 120,000 customers were without electricity, out of an estimated 960,000 affected. That included approximately 1,400 out in Manhattan, 27,400 in Queens, 21,100 in Brooklyn, 12,000 in Staten Island and 6,000 in the Bronx. In Westchester County, the company reported 52,868 customers out of service, while approximately 170,000 customers had their service restored in the last week.

Officials said they expected to restore the “vast majority of those affected by Hurricane Sandy by the weekend,” according to a press release.

“While Con Edison continues to return electricity to customers since Hurricane Sandy moved out, the company is monitoring the Nor'easter forecast for Wednesday,” officials said in a press release Monday night. “The expected high winds and heavy rains could delay restorations and may cause additional outages.”

Con Edison " claimed" to have over 2,000 crews out to restore
power. Where exactly are they being sent? Certainly not to
Eastchester. Yesterday, Con Ed managed to restore power to only 357
Eastchester customers. Today, more bad weather coming in so that will give Con Ed another reason to delay. We are all living now in a third world country!
All of us should file a formal complaint with the NY State Public
Service Commission... (not that will really do anything)
This situation is beyond reason now...
