A message from Rye Brook Village Mayor Joan Feinstein:
This evening less than 200 homes are without power. Larger outages include areas near Ridge Blvd, Ridge Street near Ridge Blvd., and Pine Ridge Road. Con Ed expects that additional areas near Westchester Ave. are to be restored tonight including the Port Chester Middle School. Other locations have single or smaller outages on multiple streets. I continue to strongly express to Con Ed our need for more complete and accurate information and to restore residents that have been out of power for the last 10 days.
If you do not have power, it is imperative that you continue to call in the outage every day at 1-800-75-CONED. If power is restored to your area and you do not have power returned, it is important to call that in as well.
Westchester County announced today that they have opened a Hurricane Sandy Recovery Center at the Westchester County Center in White Plains that will be staffed 7 days a week from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM. The center will be staffed with representatives from Con Edison to meet with residents and answer questions about outages and restorations, and FEMA representatives to help individuals and households apply for financial aid for losses and damages caused by the storm.
The AJP Community Center at 32 Garibaldi Place will continue to remain open as a warming and information center 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
Additional staff has been hired to assist Rye Brook highway crews who are working extended work days picking up leaves and storm debris of a manageable size. Please be patient as the volume of material is large.
