Progress Being Made in Power Restoration


As of 11 a.m. NYSEG reports that 3,700 customers are without power in the Auburn division. 2,700 customers in the Geneva division and 1,100 customers are without power in the Ithaca division.

The Company’s Auburn division includes Onondaga and Cayuga counties. The Geneva division includes Ontario, Seneca, Wayne, and Yates counties. The Ithaca division includes Cayuga, Chemung, Cortland, Schuyler, Seneca, Tioga, and Tompkins counties.

Thousands of residents are still without power in the Finger Lakes as NYSEG crews continue their restoration efforts. Here is the 1:30 p.m. update by county:

Cayuga:      2,225
Ontario:        456
Schuyler:      118
Seneca:     1,619
Steuben:      157
Tompkins:      9
Wayne:        366
Yates:          415

There are still reports of broken poles and downed wires and tree limbs due to strong wind gusts. NYSEG storm response teams remain fully engaged, including lineworkers and tree personnel who were pre-staged in the region ahead of the storm. The Company has 341 lineworkers on site, and 1,796 in route, along with 159 tree crew personnel on site and an additional 120 in route. The company is also coordinating response efforts with state and local emergency management authorities.

The Cayuga County Office Building will be closed for the rest of the week after the roof was damaged during Tuesday’s windstorm. Legislature Chair Aileen McNabb-Coleman says the repair work requires a crane, which is currently located at the back of the county office building. Since there will be limited access for employees and the public during this time, officials have decided to close the building.
