Con Ed Asks Public to Refrain from Entering FDR Park in Yorktown

The utility company is using Franklin D. Roosevelt Park in Yorktown as a staging area. A spokesperson said power will be restored by the end of this weekend.

Con Edison is still deep in restoration efforts a week-and-a-half after Hurricane Sandy hit and a Nor'easter had a bigger impact than expected in the area on Wednesday.

The snow storm knocked out electricity to approximately 55,000 customers in New York City and Westchester County, according to Con Ed. 

"In Westchester, there were about 35,000 customers out of service and some communities were hit particularly hard by tree damage, downed wires and road closures," the company said earlier today.

The utility company is using Franklin D. Roosevelt Park in Yorktown as a staging area for crew members and officials are asking the public to refrain from entering the staging area. 

"It's important to stay out of that area because you'll have large utility trucks in and out and it could be dangerous," spokesperson for ConEd Alfonso Quiros told Patch. 

Con Ed crews members, who had to be taken off the roads during the Nor'easter Wednesday night until it was safe, are now back to work to restore power to thousands of customers. 

The company continues to say most power will be restored in the county by the end of this weekend.
