Some Westchester and Putnam County residents are still without power the morning after thunderstorms rolled through the area, toppling trees and sending power lines flying.

As of 8 a.m. on Tuesday, July 23, Con Edison was reporting four current outages that were affecting 17 of their 348,198 customers. An additional 11 NYSEG customers in Westchester and 60 Putnam customers were still reporting outages.

In Westchester, residents Briarcliff Manor, Lewisboro, New Rochelle, Somers, and White Plains were still left in the dark. In Putnam, residents in Carmel (37 outages), Kent (17) and Putnam Valley (six) were reporting outages. Full restoration of power is expected by approximately 11 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

The storms led to massive flooding throughout the region, causing chaotic traffic, crashes, and forcing officials to temporarily close the Saw Mill River Parkway due to the heavy rain. Hundreds lost power overnight. On Tuesday, there will be a speed restriction of 35 mph on the new Tappan Zee Bridge.

More rain is expected at times on Tuesday, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a flash flood watch for the area. The storm system is expected to finally slow down by midday, followed by some intermittent afternoon showers.
