Nor’easter Update 3-5-18

I just recorded and sent the following message city-wide:

This is the City of New Rochelle with Monday’s storm recovery update.

Power restoration is now underway with several crews working in New Rochelle. Locations are prioritized by Con Ed according to the number of homes affected by each repair.

Separate crews are still working to clear roads, with a focus on major streets or areas without emergency vehicle access.

If you do not have power, we urge you to call Con Ed on a daily basis until your power is restored. Con Ed’s number is 1-800-75CONED.

City resources are fully mobilized round the clock. We have pressed Con Ed at every opportunity to devote sufficient resources to our area and to operate on a 24-hour basis — and now with another major storm forecast for Tuesday night through Thursday morning, we are pushing Con Ed hard to effect repairs prior to then.

The New Rochelle Public Library is open today until 8:00pm, and the Hugh Doyle Senior Center until 4:30pm as warming and charging centers.

Dry ice is once again available near City Hall on Hamilton Avenue until 6:00pm. Con Ed also has an information truck at the same site.

Additional information is available at www.newrochelleny.com.

This has been Mayor Noam Bramson. Thank you for listening.
