At 6 a.m. today, Orange and Rockland Utilities reported that approximately 1,152 customers remain out of service due to storm damage; 66 of those customers are in Rockland County. 

The customers in Rockland County who remain without power are in three locations including Ramapo, where twenty homes and businesses are still waiting to be reconnected. Haverstraw has twenty-eight without power, and Orangetown has four.

O&R expects to restore power to nearly all customers affected by the storm by 11 p.m. today. Customers who have no power due to structural damage to their buildings or to their buildings’ internal electric equipment will have a longer delay.
