Mamaroneck Schools Back in Session Tomorrow; 1,600 M'Mk Homes Still Without Power

Village of Mamaroneck officials report that power has been restored to major public buildings in the village.


Update from the Village of Mamaroneck: 

Con Edison has been working very cooperatively with the village and has ramped up their efforts to restore our critical facilities and homes around the village, and we have made significant progress on Saturday and Sunday.  At this moment, approximately 1,600 homes remain without power around the entire village. This translates into about 18 percent of the village remaining without electricity. Orienta has significant infrastructure damage throughout the entire area. Con Ed is trying to determine the locations of the power outage and feeder requirements.

Here is the list of critical facilities restored this weekend:

  1. Rye Neck High School at 300 and 310 Hornidge Rds.
  2. Mamaroneck High School at 1000 West Boston Post Rd.
  3. Mamaroneck Town Center at 740 West Boston Post Rd.
  4. F.E. Bellows School at 200 Carroll Ave.
  5. Westchester Joint Water Works' (WJWW) Headquarters at 1625 Mamaroneck Ave.
  6. Major portions of Rye Neck section of Village of Mamaroneck will be restored with the repairs to the Carroll Avenue loop.
  7. Mamaroneck Village Hall phones are all working

Based on the fact that electricity has been restored to all schools, Mamaroneck Schools and Rye Neck Schools will open all schools Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, and Elections can proceed on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012.

We've been tracking a new Nor'easter predicted to hit the East Coast since it was first brought to our attention last week.  At this time the latest information, based on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) out of Mt. Holly, is that the major risk appears to be for New Jersey and Pennsylvania.  Accuweather at this time is not predicting more than an inch of rain for us, but it all depends.  We will keep all residents apprised of the risks from this storm.

The Town Senior Center at 1288 Boston Post Rd. will remain open tonight as a Shelter and Warming Center, and people in need can stay overnight if need be.

Hampshire Country Club has heat and electricity, and have invited anyone in need to stop in for a hot shower and charge cell phones from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.  They are located at 1025 Cove Rd. in Mamaroneck.

The Mamaroneck Town Senior Center will be on a normal schedule Monday Nov. 5, 2012.

 Further updates will be issued as available.  Thank you and stay safe over the next several days during this recovery

Thanks to all that are making heroic efforts to getting our residents back on to the grid. I know we have out of state crews from Dallas, TX working in our area. Shout out to them all with thanks.
