Thursday Morning Update: Outages Climb to 1,660 After Winter Storm in Scarsdale

GASnowAs of Thursday morning, Con Ed is reporting 1,660 customer outages in Scarsdale, which have resulted from 112 discrete events, representing a sharp increase over yesterday's remaining outage count of 444. This new outage count sets up back to even more outages then there were after the first nor'easter on Friday.

All Scarsdale Schools are closed today after outages occurred. We believe power to the high school and Fox Meadow is out.

From conversations with the restoration crews around town we learned that many of the workers are unprepared to fix the devastation. We spoke to a worker who was surveying the large outage on Walworth Avenue during the snowstorm on Wednesday. He looked surprised and said he was not capable of fixing the issue which was far larger than he had anticipated.

A reader in Edgewood had a similar experience. She wrote, "Still without power in Edgewood! One of my neighbors told me a Con Ed crew person was in Edgewood yesterday and said he did not have the right equipment to do any repairs and left. No crew in site today. A ConEd person in Heathcote on Tuesday night told me he was sorry, did not know the neighborhood at all and was getting information from customers!"

It appears that the Village has been frustrated in their attempts to coordinate work with Con Edison.

Meanwhile, the heavy snows and wind caused additional downed trees yesterday, resulting in new road closures, as follows:

1. Tunstall Road (Madison Road –Nelson Road)
2. Brewster Road (Huntington Ave –Kingston Road)
3. Claremont Road (Berkeley Road –Walworth Avenue)
4. Post Road (Burgess Road –Olmsted Road)
5. 77 Popham Road –Westbound lane closed
6. 9 Carman Road closed at Gaylor
7. Eton and Greendale Roads
8. Cambridge and Rugby (Mamaroneck –Rugby)
9. 55 Penn –Branch on house service across the road

The global restoration target for all power outages in Westchester County is now Friday at 11:00 PM, though the Village continues to pressure Con Ed for additional local restoration crews.
