Weather-Related Information for White Plains Residents & Businesses for March 3, 2018 - 12:45 PM

Due to storm conditions we had numerous trees fall in the city resulting in power loss and street closures.  The City of White Plains has had its forestry crews out working since last night to clear downed trees and tree limbs. Our crews have cleared trees from all roads with the exception of trees in contact with power lines. A Con Ed crew must participate in tree removal efforts in those cases due to the hazards associated with potentially live wires. We are prepared to go to work in any of these locations as soon as Con Ed arrives.

We have been in regular contact with Con Ed throughout. There are 60 line crews working throughout Westchester County today, and there is significant damage, closed streets, and loss of power county-wide. As a result, the crews are focused on deactivating damaged wires in areas where road access is an issue so that the streets can be re-opened. Given that focus they have told us they will not begin any significant restoration work anywhere in the county until tomorrow at the earliest. 

We remain in contact with Con Ed and are working to get White Plains outages prioritized. Mutual aid line crews from other parts of the country are beginning to arrive but Con Ed has indicated the bulk of them will not be here until Monday or Tuesday.

If you are without power, please make sure you have reported your outage to Con Ed by calling Con Ed at 1-800-75-CONED. You may also check the status of a reported power outage on the Con Ed website at:  ConEd.com. This is also the best source for checking power restoration times. While the City focuses on facilitating Con Ed access, actual power restoration can only be done by Con Ed.

The library is open today until 5:00 PM today. Free WiFi and charging are available.

The City has opened a warming station at the White Plains Education & Training Center that is available to all residents in need. It is located at 303 Quarropas Street.

Con Ed has indicated they will be making dry ice available in the near future and we will provide information regarding this service when we receive it.

Please take care to avoid downed power lines.
