This Halloween brought many tricks to the northeastern U.S. this year. Flights at New York's JFK International, Newark Liberty, Stewart International, and Westchester County airports today as utility crews come in from California to help with the cleanup and resumption of power for nearly half a million people serviced by Con Edison. A spokesperson for the company said over 3000 wires are down and 800 roads are closed in Westchester.
The spokesperson for Con Edison also said that the estimates for full power restoration are next Tuesday. In some areas, power restoration could take weeks. New York and Long Island have been declared disaster zones and are waiting for assistance. Authorities are requesting that everyone, whether travelling or waiting for power restoration to be patient as crews are working as fast as possible to get things back on track.
