Dear NYSEG Customer,
As a result of several rounds of lightning, severe wind and heavy rain beginning last evening, we’re currently reporting approximately 8,000 customers without power in our Brewster Division (parts of Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties). The outage count is down from a peak of more than 15,000 early this morning.
Easy ways to stay informed:
- Report outages, view estimated restoration time and more by going to mobile-friendly Outage Central, or call our electricity emergency line at 1.800.572.1131.
- Sign up to receive NYSEG Outage Alerts by text message, email, or voice message.
Our local crews and support personnel have been working since the outset and we are continuing to bring in additional resources – including line and tree crews – from across the state.
As we continue to respond to downed wires incidents to ensure public safety, we expect to have 90% of the original storm-related outages restored by 1 p.m. tomorrow.
For the latest outage counts; outage locations by county, municipality and streets/roads; and estimated restoration times (as they are available), visit Outage Central.
