"This morning, the last customers in Westchester affected by Hurricane Sandy, whose equipment could be restored, were getting their electricity back," Con Edison said in a statement this morning.
For some, this means getting power and heat back two weeks after Sandy hit the county.
"Sandy caused five times as many outages as the next largest storm in Con Edison history, Hurricane Irene, which hit in August 2011," the statement said. "The company has gone through a year’s worth of some materials since Hurricane Sandy struck. Con Edison and thousands of mutual aid and contractor personnel replaced 60 miles of electric cable and responded to tens of thousands of locations."
According to the company's outage map, as of 10:15 a.m. on Monday, 165 Westchester County customers remain without power, with the highest number of outages remaining in the Town of New Castle (47).
These county outages are anticipated to be restored by 11 p.m. tonight, with the exception of Dobbs Ferry's eight reported remaining outages, which have an estimated restoration time of 4 a.m. tomorrow.
"In the wake of those storms, the company will be rebuilding and replacing more equipment to ensure reliability," Con Edison said today.
