Wind Knocks Out Power to Scarsdale Homes

brokenbranch(Updated February 14) As of 8:30 am on February 14, 110 homes in Scarsdale remain without power. Though Con Edison is now promising that the power will go back on for some today, others will not have their lights and heat back on until Wednesday morning.

Con Edison originally reported  that 168 homes in Scarsdale are without power as of 7 pm on February 13. Fierce winds caused a tree to fall at the intersection of Brite and Oakstwain Roads, knocking out power to homes on Fenimore, Brewster, Chesterfield, Cohawney, Hampton, Kensington and Tompkins Road in Fox Meadow as well as Oakstwain Road in Grenacres.

Power is also out on Drake Road, Forest Lane, Woods Lane, Eastwoods Lane in Edgewood and Cooper Road, in Heathcote. Con Edison is not guaranteeing that power will be restored until 7 pm tomorrow night (2/14).

Please remember this when someone talks about saving trees. They are beautiful but also very dangerous. If you are interested in saving trees, save your own and let me cut my trees without interference.

Winds were clocked at 72 MPH on Monday 2/13/17. Does anybody know the highest speeds hit in Scarsdale? I had to hang onto a bench on my way to the office because I was having trouble controlling my speed with the wind at my back!

The large tree fell at the intersection of Brite and Fenimore, cutting Fenimore completely. It came from the Greenacres side and crashing into electric wires on the Fox Meadow side.
Luckily no house was damaged.
