Con Ed: Power restored to Westchester, NYC

Posted: Updated:

Con Edison says that it has restored power to the last customers that could be restored in Westchester and New York City were getting their power back on Monday morning.

More than one million customers lost power because of Superstorm Sandy.

The power company says approximately 16,300 customers in flood-ravaged areas of Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island can't get electrical service until their own internal equipment is repaired, tested and certified by an electrician as ready for service.

Con Edison crews were able to restore power to approximately 13,600 customers in those shoreline communities.

The company is working with the New York City Buildings Department to expedite the restoration of these customers. For information, click here.

Sandy caused five times as many outages as the next largest storm in Con Edison history, Hurricane Irene, which hit in August 2011. The company has gone through a year's worth of some materials since Hurricane Sandy struck. Con Edison and thousands of mutual aid and contractor personnel replaced 60 miles of electric cable and responded to tens of thousands of locations.
