Con Edison: Service restored to more than 1M
NEW YORK (AP) — Consolidated Edison Inc. says it's restored power to more than 1 million customers since Superstorm Sandy and the nor'easter.
However, the utility said Monday that 16,300 customers are still without power in flood-ravaged areas of Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.
They cannot get service until their own internal equipment is repaired, tested and certified by an electrician.
The utility said all of the customers in New York City and Westchester County whose equipment could be restored now have electricity again.
