Thousands still without power in Westchester County as 2nd nor’easter looms

NEW YORK — Utility crews are feverishly restoring power in the northern New York City suburbs while another winter storm waits in the wings.

A nor'easter that hammered the region on Friday damaged large portions of the state.

Con Edison says it still had about 28,000 Westchester County customers without power on Tuesday morning but expects to have the "vast majority" restored by 11 p.m.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 4 a.m. Thursday as another nor'easter is set to slam the area.

Con Edison says it already has asked out-of-state energy companies for help with the next round.

Wednesday's storm is forecast to be more severe than Friday's, with accumulations of 6 to 12 inches across the tri-state area, and 10 to 15 inches across interior portions of the Lower Hudson Valley, the weather service warns.
