Power outages lingering in parts of NY
NEW YORK (AP) — Residents in the areas of New York hit hardest by a powerful nor’easter could be without power into the early part of next week.
The storm brought flooding and heavy winds that brought down trees, with Westchester and Putnam counties particularly impacted by the loss of electricity.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo deployed an additional 100 members of the New York National Guard to assist recovery efforts as he declared a state of emergency in Dutchess, Putnam, Sullivan and Westchester counties.
The governor said 182,000 New Yorkers were without power Sunday afternoon.
As of 7 p.m. Sunday, Con Edison reported about 49,000 customers without electricity, many in the White Plains area. It says most outages should be restored by Tuesday night.
