Utility crews feverishly restoring power; another storm soon
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York metro area is bracing for another winter storm just days after a nor’easter hammered the region with high winds.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 4 a.m. Thursday. Some areas could get as much as a foot of snow. Coastal areas may see more rain.
Meanwhile, utility crews are feverishly restoring power in Westchester County after Friday’s storm caused plenty of outages.
Con Edison says it still had 23,000 Westchester County customers without power late Tuesday afternoon but expects to have the “vast majority” restored by 11 p.m.
About 350 flights scheduled for Wednesday at John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia airports have already been canceled. Travelers are being urged to contact their airlines before heading to the airports.
