The following is a post-storm status report for the Village of Tuckahoe for Monday, Nov. 5.
With the village wide power restoration nearly complete, I am putting much pressure on getting ConEd to restore service to the new Medical Office Building on Main Street. I will be meeting with ConEd representatives today to try to come up with a solution to this service problem.
In addition to this office building as of this morning our data shows only two homes without power.
I continue to ask that any Tuckahoe residents who have a loss of power please make sure you have notified ConEdison of your outage via their website at www.ConEd.com or phone 1-800-75-CONED to get on their list. In addition please email your address to me at email@example.com.
I will make sure our ConEd liasons working with us have this on their schedule and follow-up with them until the service is restored.
We are expecting a storm mid this week which will bring high winds, but at this point it is anticipated to be far less intense that what we saw last week with Hurricane Sandy. Please prepare yourselves with the emergency supplies that you are now accustomed to securing before a storm.
I now see that fuel deliveries are being made on a steady basis to gas stations in our area.
The continued long lines for getting to the pumps seems to be a result of an increase in customers from other areas who have no access to gas in their neighborhoods. I expect that this problem will steadily diminish every day for the next few days.
Thank you for your attention to this.
Steven A. Ecklond, Mayor
