Hurricane Sandy Update November 6, 2012
Village of Croton-on-Hudson E-Notice

Tuesday, November 06, 2012, 12:00 pm
Sandy Hurricane UPDATE
  • Nine Con Edison crews are working in our area today, Tuesday, on restoring the four feeder lines that bring power into the Village. That is three more crews than we had here yesterday, which is good news.
  • Old Post Road North has been fully opened since yesterday’s update to allow the utility pole crew access to the snapped pole locations.
  • We are working hard to get a Verizon crew to clear their low hanging wires on Lexington Drive. Doing so will allow the Con Edison pole crew to access the two snapped pole locations.
  • Power to the water supply on Finney Farm Road has been restored this morning.
IMPORTANT: If you have no power, please CONTINUE to call ConEdison, 1-800-752-6633 (1-800-75Coned), and re-register your outage there EVERY MORNING.
As the main feeder lines come back on, Con Ed’s system ASSUMES that everyone downstream is back on line.
But, that may NOT be the case, IF your block has a local issue, such as a tripped transformer. Please continue to notify Con Edison, if you remain out of power.
Streets listed below are either fully or partially restored with power: 11 streets have been fully or partially restored since the last update (in boldface below).

A note about generators:
  • If you are running on generator, Con Edison asks that you shut off your home’s main breaker, usually top of circuit breaker panel. Doing so will prevent your generator from back-feeding your service line and re-electrifying lines that Con Edison or our DPW crew think are de-energized.
  • If you are operating a generator, please move the generator as far from your home as possible to avoid fumes and exhaust from entering your home; 20 feet is the minimum recommended distance.
A note about service lines and home weather-heads:
  • Con Edison owns–and is responsible for–the service line from the street pole to the weather-head that attaches the line to your building. Con Edison also owns the meter itself, typically mounted on the outside of your building.
  • The homeowner owns–and is responsible for–the weather-head, the riser conduit, and meter pan box. The riser brings your service line down from the weather-head to the meter pan box where your line enters the home.
  • Contact your electrician, if your weather-head, riser, or meter pan box has pulled away from your home or appears damaged. You will be responsible for repairing these. See the photo at bottom.
  • The photo below shows a weather head that is good and intact.

The warming and recharging station in the Municipal Building has moved from the basement to the second-floor board meeting room and the Court Room on the first floor and will remain open 24/7. This room change is due to the polling machines arriving for today’s election.

Blocked or partially blocked roads (alphabetical by street name)
Tuesday, 11/6/2012, 1 pm
LEXINGTON DR
BLOCKED due to low phone wires that have to be raised between 75 Lexington & Sunset Drive; trees removed; snapped pole.
All other streets within the Village limits have been reopened.
In many locations, full restoration will require multiple utility crews, each with specialized equipment. At minimum, a wire crew is needed to restring the power lines. In some cases, where utility poles are damaged, a pole crew with an auger truck is needed to replace snapped poles. And in some locations, especially where poles are damaged, a transformer crew is also needed to replace damaged transformers. After poles and transformers have been replaced the line crews can restring the power lines.
From the Croton Yacht Club:
"Over the past few days, the Croton Yacht Club membership has worked tirelessly to restore the facility to normalcy. Beginning 12 noon Monday 11/5, we are opening our doors to all Village Residents who are still out of power and or heat. The Yacht Club will be open and available between the hours of 10AM to 10PM for residents to warm up and or charge their cell phones. We ask all residents who receive this notice to share the information with those families who are still suffering the impact of hurricane Sandy.
We would also like to remind residents that the Yacht Club is committed to hosting its annual Veterans Day luncheon Sunday immediately following the Village ceremony scheduled for 11AM.
Sincerely, The Croton Yacht Club, Inc., Board of Directors"
We will be sending further updates as conditions change.
