Over 7K Larchmont/Mamaroneck Residents Still Without Power

Many in the Sound Shore area are still suffering from power outages.

 

According to Con Ed's outage map, approximately 3,532 Mamaroneck residents and almost the same number—3,619 Larchmont residents—are without power today.

The vast majority of outages are concentrated in the areas that bordered Long Island Sound that were most affected by Sandy's force on rising tides.

In the Mamaroneck neighborhood of Orienta, 765 homes remain without power; in Larchmont, 365 homes near Manor Park still have not had their power restored.

Other problematic areas include Concord Avenue in Larchmont with 1,269 households; 524 on Little Farms Road in Larchmont; 198 on Gilder Street in Larchmont; 198 on Copley Road in Larchmont and 692 on Brook Street in Mamaroneck.

Both the Mamaroneck and Larchmont Public Libraries are open today and have free wireless access, heat and a place to charge devices. The Larchmont Library will have extended hours this weekend to accomodate residents impacted by Sandy as follows: Friday, 9 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sat. 9 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sun. 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

New York Sports Clubs in Mamaroneck, New Rochelle, Scarsdale and White Plains are allowing non-members to come in and work out, shower and charge devices through Nov. 14.

Both Mamaroneck and Rye Neck Schools have been closed the entire week.  

The Hommocks Ice Rink is open today and tomorrow with free skating from 1:00-5:15 p.m. The Hommocks Pool is open today as well—there is no admission fee from 1-5 p.m.

These figures, even if from Con Ed's maps, are grossly inaccurate. For example there are not nearly 1,269 households on all of Concord Avenue in Larchmont, nor are there anywhere near 198 on all of Gilder Street, which leads one to conclude that most if not all of the other numbers in the article and, possibly, on Con Ed's web site map are also wrong. On the other hand far too much of Larchmont/Mamaroneck is still without power, and far too little is being done about it by Con Ed, which knew that Sandy was coming and what the effects on its power lines potentially would be. To read that repair crews are only now on their way to our area, three days after Sandy ended, only illustrates Con Ed's unpreparedness. We deserve better, much better.

There is no mention of the area around Harrison Drive, Iselin Terrace, Lundy Lane that are without power. This has effected over 500 households or more. We have not seen a truck in our area at all and there is still a tree down in the middle of Harrison that has pulled wires down with it.

There is also no power to about 11 homes on Blossom Terrace. There are down wires.
