Despite an interruption this week when a nor'easter swept through the region, Con Edison still maintains all of its Sandy-affected customers will have power by the end of tomorrow.
"Just under 20,000 customers remain out in New York City and Westchester, from the 1.067 million affected by both storms," the company said in a statement early Saturday morning.
In addition, approximately 35,000 customers in the flooded Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island area will not be able to receive service "until their own internal equipment is repaired, tested and certified by an electrician as ready for service."
"Con Edison is on pace to have nearly all its Hurricane Sandy outages restoredby Sunday night," the statement said. "Sandy caused more than four times as many outages as the next largest storm in the company’s history, Hurricane Irene, which created havoc just over a year ago."
