PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – Nearly 1,200 Con Edison customers remained without power in Peekskill Monday morning, a week after Hurricane Sandy brought strong winds, rain and flooding to the area.

An estimated 1,167 out of 10,329 Con Edison customers were without power in Peekskill at 5:30 a.m. Monday, up from 359 Sunday morning.

The utility company reports an estimated 69,293 out of 348,198 Con Edison customers in Westchester were without power at 5:30 a.m. Monday, down from 88,060 Sunday morning.

"The men and women of Con Edison, along with thousands of utility workers from around the country, are working with determination and professionalism to put our customers back in service," said Craig Ivey, president of Con Edison in a press release. "We are running an aggressive, coordinated restoration campaign in response to the worst storm ever to hit New York. We will continue working around the clock until every home and business owner whose equipment was not damaged by the storm has power."

Yesterday I left my warm well lite apartment at 2 in the afternoon to do some volunteer work, when I returned at about 8 in the evening Smith St. had lost power.
To compound this when I called ConEd first they told me we had power, then we lost it Monday night, last to my shock I was told it was shut down so they could restore power else where!
This is a outrage (if 100% true) the residents of Smith St did not have a chance to prepare, some might even have given supply's away.On Sat I gave my hurricane supply's away, batteries, water and so on.
I understand the power might have been needed at a school or hospital but some courteousness would have gone a long way, I guess my neighborhood does not reach the prosperity level that requires courteousness.
This will happen again, and people should know.
So pass the word along.

Never underestimate the "Stupidity" of an "Idiot".....So I guess they blew up the transformer for good measure huh?.....#paythatchildsupport..

Any explanation from Con Ed for the increase from 400 to 1,100 homes without power?
