Storm Recovery Update 3-9-18

Here is Friday’s city-wide update on storm recovery activities.  After today, we’re going to suspend our daily messages, until and unless there is significant new information to share.  But, while the robo-calls might end, pushing Con Ed to restore power will remain our top priority, until everyone’s service is restored.

This is a storm recovery update from the City of New Rochelle.

Significant progress was made yesterday, with power restored for about 1,500 homes, but one week after the first storm, about 900 homes still remain without electricity. If you do not have power, we urge you to continue contacting Con Ed on a daily basis at 1-800-75-CONED or online at www.coned.com.

Several repair crews are in our area today and additional restoration is expected.

With the exception of northbound Pinebrook Boulevard between Beechmont and Forest, all local roads are now open.

Dry ice is once again available near City Hall on Hamilton Avenue today until 8pm.

DPW is beginning to pick up storm debris. Please pile all debris curbside and NOT in the street.

This will be the last of our daily calls, although updates will be posted to the City website at www.newrochelleny.com and social media channels. And, of course, further robo-calls will follow if there is significant new information to share.

Please be assured that pushing Con Edison for power restoration will remain the City’s highest priority until everyone has their power back.

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