  • If you have had power restored and live on one of the above streets, please call 914-271-4781 to let us know you have power restored.  If you are not on the above list, and still have not power, please also call with your name and address.
  • A ConEdison crew is working this afternoon in the area of Glengary Road/Hixson/Hessian Hills.
  • Hot meals: Due to the generosity of neighbors, free hot dinners are being prepared as follows: (1) tonight, Wednesday, at the Municipal Building from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm (Contact Seana O’Callaghan, seanaocall@gmail.com) and (2) tomorrow, Thursday evening, at Holy Name of Mary Parish Hall as a potluck from 5:30 to 8:30 pm (Contact Marie Considine, 914-552-1633).
  • Pole repair: We have 3 remaining poles that need to be replaced: (1) Morningside between Sunset and Old Post Road South; (2) Mt Green Road about half-way up; (3) Old Post Road North midway between Prospect Street and Stevenson Place.  Four other snapped poles have been replaced to date.
  • Transformer repair: We have three locations that need new, replacement transformers: (1) Morningside between Sunset and Old Post Road South; (2) Old Post Road South between Morningside and Truesdale; and (3) Mt Airy Road.
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, ConEd’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 ConEdison, if you remain out of power.

Streets listed below are either fully or partially restored with power.

A note about generators:
  • If you are running on generator, ConEdison 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 ConEdison 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:
  • ConEdison owns–and is responsible for–the service line from the street pole to the weather-head that attaches the line to your building. ConEdison 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 will remain open 24/7. Public wifi has been restored to this building.
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. It also has public wifi.  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.
