Con Edison continues to note that the can not send crews out yet as the

storm has not ended yet and there are many overhead outages - they must

wait for the wind to slow


-105,000 citywide without power


-11,750 in Brooklyn


Con Edison is cautiously optimistic as high tide has passed and bulk of the

rain has moved north -


-they will prioritize restorations based on which repairs will restore the

power to the most people


-there were no preemptive outages in Brooklyn - restorations could start

early afternoon but it could take several days


-there is an outage map on on the bottom left -"Storm Central"

and then you can click on Outage Information Map


-I reviewed the map for our district -looks like 306 customers in Dyker

Heights, 8 near Stillwell Avenue, 1 in Bay Ridge, 212 in the Ocean Parkway

area, 2133 by Avenue U near Marine Park (most of our area) and 1059 near

Knapp Street/Gerritsen Beach


Another call is at 2pm and will again update.
