Greenburgh Storm Cleanup Could Take Days

GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Town of Greenburgh Highway Department workers said it could take up to a week to clean all the damage wreaked by Tuesday night's storm that brought down tree branches and power lines across town.

Wind gusts in Greenburgh reached 47 mph \Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service, causing branches to fall on power lines and power outages for hundreds of residents.

There were no injuries reported from the storm, the Greenburgh Police Department and Elmsford Police Department said, but some still remain without power, and may have to wait until 11 p.m. Wednesday until it is restored, according to Con Edison.

There are 30 Elmford residents still remain without power and 87 Greenburgh residents without power, according to ConEdison.

"This stuff is all over the whole town," highway department worker Kevin Moore Jr. said, referring to debris on the street. "We don't know how bad it is yet. We've just been cleaning big branches and haven't dealt with a full tree down yet."

Moore's crew was busy cleaning up tree branches on Canterbury Road that had brought down wires on a house and knocked out power. That neighborhood road was hit hard, including Pomander Drive where additional wires fell down.

Public Works Commissioner Victor Carosi said workers began cleaning up Tuesday night, clearing downed trees and monitoring known flooding areas. Minor flooding was reported at the Lamont and Hayes intersection.

Downed wires caused a small fire on Hillside Avenue in the vicinity of Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Carosi said. No injuries were reported. Only one person in that area has not had power restored, according to Con Edison.

In total, 4,468 residents in Westchester County remain without power as of Wednesday morning.
