Power Up for Almost Everyone – 11/10/2012

As of this morning, 162 customers are still without power.  Con Edison crews are working on 2 main areas of concern:

Hutchinson Boulevard Area – Some homes along Hutchinson Boulevard and Hillcrest Road are still experiencing power outage. Work at an intersection to replace a pole is expected to commence and power will hopefully be restored to a small number of customers. 

Washington Street Loop – Trouble in area still affecting a few customers on 400 block of East Prospect Avenue, Sidney Avenue and Darwood Place may have been resolved late last evening.

The city is also hopeful that the following areas can be addressed in addition to a number of single service outages that have been reported. Additional outage areas to be addressed:

 Columbus Avenue – Entire city block encompassing operations of Spraylat Corporations remains out of power until central office authorizes changing of fuses on 13,000 volt transformer – switching issue. Situation has been deemed priority.

Dock Street/Edison Avenue – Pumping Station scheduled for restoration attempt as situation has been deemed priority.

South Third Avenue – A small number of homes in the 500 block are without power due to a blown transformer. Attempt will be made to change 6,000 volt fuse – Restoration without central office switching is possible.

While we are hopeful of getting citywide power restored by the end of the day, there may be a small number of instances where power cannot be restored. Remember, if you continue to experience a power outage call Con Edison to regenerate a service ticket. The system will automatically remove your address if there was a area outage and the main problem has been resolved.

Also, remember your service may not be connected if there is a problem not associated with Con Edison equipment. Call your elecrician to check your equipment if you have been advised to do so by Con Edison.

Lights Coming Back On Across the City – 11/8/2012

Priority jobs are wrapping up and now Con Edison can focus attention on addressing single service issues which continue to keep some cutomers in the dark. Last evening’s unexpected nor’easter did not impede the progress of restoration although 2 trees fell last night and countless wires were hanging low this morning from the weight of wet snow.

There have been  concern about hanging wires. Be reminded that other utility companiesalso service the city. We have been working directly with Con Edison to correct problems regarding their wires and service. Please contact your cable and/or telephone company to alert them of broken lines that may be affecting their services to  you.

RESTORATION UPDATE

South 6th Avenue/Kingsbridge Road – Poles will have to be replaced and wires rehung.

Ehrbar Avenue – One building still remains without power. Transformer will be replaced.

East Third Street – Fuse replaced. Power Restored.

South Columbus Avenue – Repair work to continue tomorrow to restore service.

Prospect/East Sidney/Darwood Avenues – Fuses replaced.

Prospect Avenue/Portugal Place – Traffic light problem corrected.

Hayward Avenue – Possible blown fuse to be inspected tomorrow.

We know it has been tough for residents experiencing outages. Remember to contact Con Edison if you are without service as the system will automatically drop your complaint once service within your are has been restored. By calling you will reactivate your service ticket or generate one if you haven’t contacted them. 

As of this posting approximately 97% of the city has been restored.

 

 

ConEd CREWS BLITZ CENTRAL PARKWAY – 11/6/2012

Con Edison crews are now focused on rebuilding Central Parkway. A convoy of trucks converged upon Central Parkway before nightfall last evening to take the first step toward restoration of power to the hardest hit area of Mount Vernon.

 Residents are urged to have continued patience. We have been assured crews will work continuously to restore power.

WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING

Yesterday service to nearly 1,000 Con Edison customers was restored. As of this morning 6% of Con Edison Mount Vernon customers (1,623) still remain without service. Restorations to date total 20,787 citywide.

The Pennington area has been restored except between Central Parkway between East Devonia and Grand Street.  Con Edison is reminding customers experiencing single outages (damaged service, service wires down) that they will experience longer waiting times for restoration of service.

Residents in the Ehrbar Avenue, Rochelle Terrace and Hartley Avenue areas experiencing continued outage are advised that primary wires and transformers are at issue. Steps are currently being taken to expedite restoration not only in this area but also in the Prospect, East Sidney and Darwood Avenues.

Please use extreme caution when coming upon any downed wires. The safest thing to do is to TREAT EVERY WIRE AS LIVE. Remember, all downed wires do not belong to Con Edison. It’s always safer to be cautious.
