As of Saturday morning, Con Edison reports approximately 107,000 customers affected by Hurricane Sandy earlier this week remain without power.
"Con Edison crews have restored electricity to more than 645,000 customers, or approximately 70 percent of all those who lost power since Hurricane Sandy slammed through New York," the company said in a statement.
As election day grows ever closer, the company is focused on bringing back power to polling places affected in the area.
"Weekend goals for Con Edison and out-of-town crews are to restore electricity to schools for Monday, and polling places for Tuesday," the statement said. "Those restorations are nearing 100 percent for accessible buildings. Some cannot be re-energized since they are in flood zones with damage that bars the safe re-introduction of electricity."
The company is again offering dry ice to customers without power in the county at two locations today. The supplies "will be distributed until 4 p.m. or until supplies run out."
- Westchester County Center — 198 Central Ave. White Plains
- Yonkers Raceway — 810 Yonkers Ave. Yonkers
"Instructions for safe handling and disposal of dry ice are printed on the bag for residents who pick up dry ice. Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide and should be used only in well-ventilated areas," the company said. "Keep children and pets safely away."
