Scarsdale Village reports that the following roads remain closed:

As previously reported, hundred of trees and wires are down in the village after Tropical Storm Isaias whipped through Scarsdale on the afternoon of Tuesday August 4 with howling winds and driving rain. Trees swayed and fell so hard they made the ground shake. Even after the rain stopped around 3 pm, severe winds continued to rock trees back and forth until early evening. 

According to the Con Edison outage map, 2,188 village homes are without power as of 6 pm on Tuesday night, about one third of homes. Emergency workers are responding to residents with fallen trees, wires and emergencies.

Here is the Con Ed Outage report as of the morning of August 5: You can see the outage here.

Traffic lights are out and drivers are weaving around town to avoid the fallen trees that have blocked many roadways. Some trees even fell onto houses, creating devastating damage. People are struggling to navigate roadways due to closures on Post Road, Palmer Avenue, and other main thoroughfares.
