The Village of Scarsdale is in contact with Westchester County and Con Edison in an effort to coordinate and expedite the clearing of downed trees and wires from local roads. Village of Scarsdale and ConEd crews have been working on recovery operations through the weekend and continue to do so today. As of Friday, there were 90 locations with trees down, impacting roads and electricity service; as of this writing, 11 remain. A list of current road closures is at the end of this storm recovery update.
Sanitation collections are presently occurring as otherwise scheduled, and Village staff are preparing a protocol for resident and contractor disposal of private property storm debris.
ConEd has advised that over 290 out-of-state contractors have arrived to support the Westchester County recovery effort, with over 390 anticipated by tomorrow. ConEd continues to represent that they will have power restored to at least 90% of Westchester County customers by late Tuesday night, leading into early Wednesday morning. Customers can report downed power lines, outages and check service restoration status at www.conEd.com or by calling 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633). Please also note that ConEd is distributing dry ice and water today up until 6:00 PM in the rear parking lot of the New Rochelle City Hall, rear parking lot, 515 North Avenue.
Importantly, another significant storm is threatening Scarsdale and surrounding areas. The National Weather Service indicates a possibility of rain turning into potentially significant snow accumulations, accompanied by moderate to high winds, beginning late Tuesday night and continuing into early Thursday morning. In preparation for that potential extreme weather event, ConEd has requested an additional 500 contractors from out-of-state and anticipates their arrival around mid-week. More information about this storm will be disseminated as it becomes available.
