Nor’Easters in Our Area —

Nor’Easters in Our Area

Our community recently suffered the effects of back-to-back Nor’easters. Major power outages were reported in numerous homes in both Mamaroneck and Larchmont. The Village of Mamaroneck reported outages in more than six thousand homes. The Village of Mamaroneck Mayor, Tom Murphy said “I am proud of the work that Village emergency services and all employees did to meet this emergency. Con Ed, however, was woefully unprepared and responded in an inept fashion”. Town of Mamaroneck Supervisor, Nancy Seligson stated, “we had particular spots in town where there were major feeder lines that electrify thousands of people in other communities. This created long outages on Edgewood Avenue”. She encourages that town residents register for emergency notices on the town website, to receive notifications regarding power outages, recovery time and all potential hazards. The time to restore power to those areas affected took longer than expected due to a large amount of fallen trees. Why did this happen? Because local crews cannot remove trees with tangled wires until the electric companies certify that the wires are no longer live. Westchester County Executive George Latimer was on hand to speak at a solidarity gathering with residents and community leaders on March 9th. Some residents and businesses could be entitled for reimbursement due to lost food and medication spoilage. Claim forms are available at The forms are due within thirty days of damage.
