Day 9: > 3K With No Power, New Outages Occur

Less than 3,000 New Rochelle households are without electricity nine days after Hurricane Sandy.

Though the number of New Rochelle households that still do not have power has dipped below 3,000, according to city officials, new outages Wednesday, possibly the result of the nor-easter moving through the area, could bring that number higher.

The city urges anyone who recently lost power to contact Con Edison. 

A Red Cross shelter is still open at Albert Leonard Middle School, and various entities have opened their doors to those still without electricity. For an updated list, of warming centers, recharging stations and placed to take shower, click here.

The city's daily bulletin, issued Wednesday, is printed below.


From the City of New Rochelle: 

This is an update from the City of New Rochelle.

This morning there were fewer than 3,000 households without power, but there have been significant new outages in the last few hours, most likely as a result of storm conditions.  If you have lost power, you must contact Con Ed directly at 1-800-75-CONED.

We are urging Con Ed in the strongest terms to direct additional assessment and repair resources to New Rochelle as quickly as possible.

And we will continue pressing Con Ed to prioritize residents who have been without power continuously since Hurricane Sandy.

Con Ed has suspended dry ice distribution for today.

Please report any new downed trees to 914-740-6118 or 914-654-2300.

An emergency shelter remains open at Albert Leonard Middle School, 25 Gerada Lane.

Additional bulletins will follow as warranted.
