Nearly 75K outages reported in lower Hudson Valley

Little snow locally, but 2-4” expected today, again tonight and Friday

NEW YORK (AP) — Nearly 75,000 power outages in New York’s Lower Hudson Valley are being reported by various utilities. There also are thousands of outages north of the city.

Spokesman Alfonso Quiroz tells the Journal-News that Con Edison had about 27,800 outages in Westchester County this morning. NYSEG reported over 17,000 outages in Westchester.

Con Edison has about 6,500 customers who are still without power from last Friday’s nor’easter. They’re now expected to get their power back by 11 p.m. this Friday.

The Tri-Lakes region is still under a winter weather advisory until 7 tonight with 2 to 4 inches of snow expected today, another 2 to 4 inches expected tonight, and another 2 to 4 inches Friday.

The storm also shut down several of the region’s commuter rail lines.

Metro-North’s Harlem, Hudson and New Haven lines, which connect the city to its northern suburbs and Connecticut, were suspended Wednesday night due to downed trees.

The Long Island Rail Road is also experiencing delays and Amtrak service was suspended between Boston and New York until 10 a.m. today.
