Croton Power Outage Update
Village of Croton-on-Hudson E-Notice

Croton Power outage update
Noon, 1 September 2011
Consider lending your portable generator to neighbor in need.

At this time, we believe most of our residents and businesses that lost power have been restored.  However, we are aware that we still have about 55 homes without power as of 11 am this morning. The street locations that remain without power are listed below. We have been in constant communication with Con Edison about dispatching crews to our outage areas.

Some of the residents who still do not have power may not have access to a generator.  So if you have a portable generator, and no longer need it this week, we ask that you consider lending it to a neighbor who is still without power.  

Some homes still without power are being supplied by long extension cords strung across backyards.  Long runs of extension cords may overheat and present fire hazards.  

In the true neighbor-helping-neighbor spirit that has been so wonderfully evident this week in Croton, if you can help a neighbor obtain a direct, reliable connection to a portable generator, please reach out to your neighbor directly to do so.

Street locations with continued power outages:

Aschman Court
Fox Road  
Giglio Court
Glengary Road between Hessian Hills and Mt Airy Road
Lounsbury Road up hill from Giglio Court
North Ledge Loop
Old Post Road North between Mount Green and  Stevenson
Upper North Highland Place between Mt Airy Road and O'Reilly Court
Valley Trail

If you do not have power and do not see your location listed above, please call Con Edison first at 1-800-75CONED.

Other updates

Other communities suffered greater outages than Croton.  Con Edison has been mobilizing work crews from many other states. At this point, utility and tree crews from as far away as North Carolina and Indiana have worked in Croton on those streets where power as been restored.

In addition, we apologize to the residents who live near our Stanley Kellerhouse Municipal Building at 1 Van Wyck Street for any noise disturbance caused by the Village's diesel generator. Our Municipal Building has been without power since Sunday.   We are dependent on the generator to maintain police and other essential government services, including our Emergency Operations Center to coordinate the ongoing post-storm clean up.

The Village has been evaluating the extent of storm damage to all of our facilities including our parks.  Some of our facilities appear to have sustained considerable damage.  All facilities on the Croton River remain closed while we assess needed repairs.
