Only a handful of Westchester residents are still without power more than a week after Tropical Storm Isaias ravaged the East Coast, toppling trees and power lines.

As of 9:50 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12, Con Edison was still tending to 390 outages in Westchester, which were impacting 894 of the company’s 360,045 customers in the county.

NYSEG was reporting an additional 31 customers were without power.

The remaining outages involve extensive damage and complicated restorations for individual customers, according to Con Edison, which noted that crews are also responding to any heat-related outages that occur this week.

“Heat and humidity increase demand on the electric-delivery system and can cause equipment to overheat, affecting service,” the company said.

According to Con Edison, “the company warns that there may still be wires on the ground due to the trees and branches that were felled by the powerful gusting winds,” the company posted online. “Con Edison cautions everyone to stay away from downed wires. Do not assume they are de-energized. They may be live.”

“This is a time to recognize the perseverance of our customers,” Patrick McHugh, Con Edison’s vice president, Engineering and Planning added. “We fully empathize with our customers who have had to endure without power due to this severe weather event and at a time when our region is trying to emerge from the health crisis.”
