BEDFORD, N.Y. – More than 4,200 Bedford customers remained without power Saturday morning and it could be more than a week before power is restored.

An estimated 802 out of 1,018 Con Edison customers and 3,469 out of 6,657 New York State Energy and Gas customers were without power in Bedford at 6 a.m. Saturday. While the height of the storm passed through Tuesday and more than 320,000 customers have had power restored, most Westchester areas listed Nov. 9 or 11 as an estimated restoration date, according to Con Edison reports.

NYSEG listed Nov. 7 as the likely restoration time for Westchester customers. More than 25,425 customers out of 32,524 total customers served by NYSEG in Westchester are out of power as of 6 a.m. Saturday, down from 28,303 Friday morning.

“The hurricane is the worst natural disaster to strike Con Edison's customers,” representatives with the company said Friday. “Safety is the No. 1 priority for our customers, Con Edison employees and contractors. Crews still face thousands of wires down in New York City and Westchester County, where more than 500 roads are closed. Trees also block access to wires and equipment throughout the system and hundreds of vaults are still flooded.”

Officials said they expected to make “significant progress restoring electricity over the next seven days,” according to a press release. Additional overhead crews from around the country arrived through the week, including some from as far away as California.
