Hurricane Sandy Update November 8th 4pm
Village of Croton-on-Hudson E-Notice

Post-Sandy Hurricane UPDATE November 8, 2012 4PM

  • Our priority now is restoring the following streets (listed alphabetically):
Alexander Lane
Lexington Drive
Morningside Drive
Mount Green
Observatory
Old Post Road North between Stevenson and Prospect
Old Post Road North at Michaels Lane
Old Post Road South between Cleveland and Truesdale
Park Avenue
Sunset Drive
  • There is at present a crew in the vicinity of Old Post Road South and Sunset Drive.  This afternoon and evening’s work should give PARTIAL restoration to the following streets:
Lexington, Observatory, Park Avenue, Sunset Drive, Old Post Road South
  • We have been told that additional crews will arrive tomorrow morning to address the remainder of this area including Morningside Drive and Truesdale
  • We are aware of several homes who have no power due to their service line needing to be reconnected by Con Edison.  In addition to letting Con Edison know please let us know your name and address if that is the case.  
  • Hot meals: Due to the generosity of neighbors, free hot dinners are being prepared 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 two locations that need new, replacement transformers: (1) Morningside between Sunset and Old Post Road South; (2) Old Post Road South between Morningside and Truesdale
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

We will be sending further updates as conditions change.
