Con Edison now expects to restore the vast majority of customers, some which are classified as entire buildings, before next weekend. However, the rest of the remaining customers could take an additional week?
ConEd says it expects to restore power to Lower Manhattan customers before Saturday.
900,000 customers lost power due to the storm in New York City and Westchester County. 250,000 now have power, with 650,000 to go.
More than 100,000 power lines were knocked down, according to ConEd.
Anyone who wants to report a downed power line, outage, or check service status can call 1-800-752-6633, or log on to the company’s website.
ConEd urges people not to go near downed power lines, nor touch them. If a line falls on your car while you’re in it, stay in the car and await help.
