Update on Power Outages in Schuyler & Tompkins Counties

NYSEG crews continue to respond to severe damage to its electricity delivery system in the Ithaca area as a result of Tuesday evening's violent storms.

Nearly 17,600 NYSEG customers in NYSEG’s Ithaca Division, which includes Tompkins County and parts of Schuyler, Seneca, and Chemung Counties or 30% of the customers NYSEG serves in the region - lost power as a result of the destruction. In total, the storms caused an estimated 57-THOUSAND customer outages across NYSEG’s statewide service area.

As of midday Wednesday,  14-THOUSAND customers in NYSEG’s Ithaca Division are without power. The utility anticipates restoring 90% of the original Ithaca-area outages by Friday morning. In particularly hard-hit areas, including Lansing and Locke, restoration work will continue into Saturday.
