Mamaroneck Schools Closed Tomorrow; 4,500 Still Without Power

Village of Mamaroneck officials have issued another statement about issues related to Superstorm Sandy.

 

There are still approximately 4,500 Mamaroneck households without power at the moment.

From the Village of Mamaroneck:

The village's electricity restoration efforts are continuing in earnest. 

However, based on the volume of work to be performed to cut and clear and restore electricity around the village, the Mamaroneck and Rye Neck districts still do not have electricity in the high schools, and will be closed tomorrow on Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012.

This is a reminder that the village has a strong recommendation that all trick-or-treating take place during daylight hours because of the power outages and electrical wires down around the village.

Please be advised that rumors have been circulating that the village will be shutting off power at a certain time and a certain date.  These calls are not true and are very likely pranks. If you receive any call with information you think may be erroneous or false, please check the village website for the most current and accurate information.  You can also call the Police Desk non-emergency number at (914) 777-7781. Furthermore, we ask that if you receive such a call you make note of the phone number from where this call is originating, and report it to the police for further investigation.

In addition, the Westchester Joint Water Works (WJWW) has issued a statement asking the community to conserve water while the WJWW operates on battery operated generators as they wait for Con Ed to repair downed power lines that normally service the Water Works' pump stations, treatment plants and computerized monitoring systems.

The WJWW asks customers to do the following:

  • Limit water use to only essential needs.
  • Shorten shower times/limit toilet flushing.
  • Check for leaks and repair leaks as quickly as possible.
  • Do not use water from outdoor hoses to clean up storm debris or wash cars.
  • Avoid the use of candles in homes or apartments, thus minimizing the risk of fire emergency.
  • Homes with power should limit laundry and washer use to only full loads. 

If you have additional questions, please call (914) 698-3500.

My sister-in-law's power, in the unincorporated section of the town, was restored last night. My brother, in Larchmont Village, still has no power as well and the dead end street he lives on is still blocked off by a fallen tree. He is not getting any answers as to when and by whom that fallen tree will be removed.
