White Plains saw extensive damage as a result of the Nor’Easter that hit our area on Friday. City Department of Public Works crews were out during the storm and have been working tirelessly since then clearing fallen trees and tree limbs. By Saturday, our crews had cleared everything they could. When power lines are in the damaged or fallen tree, a Con Ed line person must be present before removal can occur to ensure the safety of those doing the removal work.
We received a 1-man crew from Con Ed on Saturday, who went around with our DPW crews. Where possible, he also restored power as part of this process. It’s important to note that as of this writing Con Ed has not put any dedicated restoration crews into the city and this is a common complaint across the County.
Con Ed has informed the City that line crews are arriving from out of state starting this evening and that they believe power will be restored to most customers in Westchester by Monday night and to nearly all customers by Tuesday night.
We have been in contact with Con Ed since the storm began and we will continue to be in contact with them until they have restored power to all White Plains customers.
The City warming center, located at the White Plains Education and Training Center, 303 Quarropas Street, will remain open this evening for any residents in need.
As we begin the new week, please note that all city services are on their normal schedule; all city offices will be open for business; and the White Plains public schools will be open.
Please continue to check the Con Ed website for restoration information. We will post general updates on the city website and social media as new information becomes available. Thank you and stay safe.
