[ARCHIVED] City of New Rochelle Storm Update

City of New Rochelle Storm Update
State of Emergency Continues; Con Edison works to restore power; Tree removal underway

The state of emergency continues for the City of New Rochelle. The City is working with Con Edison to restore power but full restoration is a long way off. Over 2/3 of the City is out. Residents are reminded to use caution while traveling as some intersections still do not have power and streets may still be closed due to downed trees and limbs. Downed wires should be considered live and avoided at all costs.

Dry ice will be distributed today by Con Edison at Yonkers Raceway from noon until 6PM.

To recap:
•A Red Cross Emergency Shelter remains open at Albert Leonard.
•Call Con Edison directly to report all outages at (800) 75-CONED. Con Edison will provide dry ice from noon-6PM at Yonkers Raceway.
•For non-emergency issues related to the storm, call 654-2300 or 2-1-1
•To report downed trees, call 740-6118
•Garbage will be picked up Thursday and Friday.
•Alternate Side enforcement is suspended for the rest of the week

Regarding Halloween, tonight’s toddler Halloween party at the Doyle Center is cancelled. Families who still intend to Trick or Treat should exercise extreme caution as hazardous conditions exist and worsen at night.

The City of New Rochelle issues updates through the City website; Facebook and Twitter; NRTV Cable Channel 75 and FIOS Channel 28; and automated phone and email messages. Residents can subscribe to receive these emergency alerts directly through the City’s website at

The following Storm Recovery Update was sent citywide today through the City’s emergency communications network.
This is a recovery update from the City of New Rochelle. Road clearance work continues, but about 2/3 of the community is still without power and Con Edison does not yet have a restoration timetable. We advise residents to plan for the worst. A shelter remains open at Albert Leonard Middle School, 25 Gerada Lane. Con Ed will distribute dry ice today at Yonkers Raceway from 12-6PM.

Regarding Halloween, use common sense and put safety first. Families who insist on trick or treating should exercise extreme caution, as wires and debris still create hazardous conditions. At a minimum, all children should be accompanied by adults and stick to daylight hours only. The toddler Halloween event at the Hugh Doyle Senior Center is cancelled. Please continue reporting power outages to Con Edison at 1-800-75 CONED or Report downed trees to 740-6118. Report other matters to the New Rochelle Police Department at 654-2300.
