Rye: 431 Homes w/ No Power, Storm Coming Wednesday

It is a race against the clock.

There are 431 homes still without power, and a storm is predicted for Wednesday. The City of Rye is asking residents to please inform them (in addition to Con Ed) if you remain without power.

Read the City's email for details:

Con Ed reports that there are still 431 accounts without power in Rye (down from approximately 2,000). Con Ed robo-calls customers to tell them that power is back on — but we understand that sometimes the call is made and power is not on. If you receive such an erroneous call, please let both Con Ed (www.coned.com, 1-800-75-coned) and the City Manager know. The City has requested restoration details from Con Ed, but Con Ed has not been forthcoming. We need information from residents in order to advocate successfully.

Con Ed continues to promise 90% restoration throughout Westchester by midnight Tuesday. That means we may have some Rye residents without power after Tuesday. We need to hear from you if you do not have power Tuesday morning, so that we can make sure that you are on Con Ed's list.

We still have a small number of live wires down. Please treat all downed wires as live wires.

The City warming center at Rye Rec is open again today, and will remain open until 9pm. Con Ed is distributing dry ice once again at 515 North Avenue, New Rochelle, behind the City Hall.

There is another storm predicted for Wednesday and Thursday. We will do all we can to have all of Rye with power on before then. Con Ed has assured us that they are maintaining the additional contractors and loaned crews now at work in the area in order to be able to respond to additional damage.

In order to facilitate storm cleanup, leaf blower use is permitted this week until sundown Friday.

Please use 911 for emergencies. The police non-emergency number is 967-1234. City Manager Marcus Serrano's telephone numbers are (o)967-7411 and (c) 424-3786. His email is mserrano@ryeny.gov. I can best be reached at jcohn@ryeny.gov.

  1. Con Ed has gutted its repair force to reduced expenses . Its 100% reliant on hiring electrical workers from other states to do repair work after storms . They don’t have control over these workers like they do their own work force thus impossible to provide timely repairs

    one day in not so distant future , we will have a major ice storm again in our area ( its been many years ) and afterwards , Con Ed won’t get power back on for a month in middle of winter .

    100% gaurantee its coming
