GREENBURGH, N.Y. - After Saturday's October snowstorm, many in the Town of Greenburgh and the Village of Elmsford are still without power, although Con Edison is busy working throughout Westchester County.
As of 11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 31, Unincorporated Greenburgh had 4,600 customers still without power, and another 2,500 who had their power restored over the weekend, said Chris Olert of Con Ed. Elmsford fared better than Greenburgh, with approximately 40 houses currently without power. Con Ed is working to get power restored by Wednesday evening. Over 1,000 workers are estimated to be fixing the electricity throughout the county.
For those without power, the Theodore D. Young Community Center is opening its doors. Residents stuck in dark, cold houses are invited to sleep in the community center's heated area. Several motels and hotels in the area are full and unable to provide rooms for all customers in need.
All schools in the Greenburgh Central 7 district are closed today as some have no electricity. The Elmsford Union Free School District is open. The Greenburgh Public Library is open until 5:30 p.m., as per Monday usual.
Town officials have advised residents to stay indoors if possible as there is ice on the streets and hanging tree branches might fall and injure passersby.
