PEEKSKILL, N.Y. — Most of Peekskill's residents have had their power restored since Hurricane Sandy, but the city is not sure how many people are still in the dark.
According to Con Edison's website, about 4 percent of the city's homes were still without power, or about 400 homes, as of Thursday afternoon.
But that number is probably inaccurate, Acting City Manager Brian Havranek said.
"A lot of that is old information so we can't get information from them," Havranek said. "We know the list is smaller than what Con Edison is saying it is. Con Edison is telling residents who call that their power is on when it's not."
Some downed lines in neighboring Cortlandt are keeping some city residents in the dark, he added.
Havranek asks city residents who are still without power to call the Public Works Department at 914-734-4130.
Unlike some neighboring municipalities, Peekskill's roads were not closed for an extended period of time due to fallen trees because the Public Works Department worked through the night to clear them.
Wednesday's nor'easter brought 2 to 3 inches of snow and caused a power outage in the Maple Avenue area down to Washington Street. The outage was fixed by 7:30 p.m.
City businesses and not-for-profit organizations damaged due to the storm can apply for FEMA recovery aid using an application available on the city website.
