YONKERS, N.Y. – More than 5,000 Con Edison customers remained without power in Yonkers Thursday morning, a week-and-a-half after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the area. Wednesday’s nor’easter did not appear to have driven the number of outages back up.

Con Edison said that 5,110 of 75,568 Con Edison customers in Yonkers, or 7 percent, were without power at 6 a.m. Thursday, down from 5,291 Wednesday morning. The utility estimated that most North Castle customers would have power back by midnight Friday.

Across Westchester, about 10 percent of Con Ed’s nearly 350,000 customers were without power at 6 a.m. Thursday. That’s 34,033 customers in the dark, down from 36,734 Wednesday morning.

Con Ed officials said Wednesday’s nor’easter could delay their work because crews repairing overhead equipment cannot work safely in high winds.

Funny how Con Ed says the nor'easter didn't drive their power loss numbers up. I live in a building on the northeast side and we lost our power - along with the two streets to the north and south of us. That's easily 500 people. Guess that's not a significant number to them. Our power came back on Saturday night and we continued to lose it on a daily basis for short periods of time with the exception of a 6 hour outage of Monday. It's now down 18 hours. I bet you though that they wouldn't have a problem finding us if we didn't pay our bill.
