NYSEG says about 100-thousand customers lost electricity when a late Spring snow storm struck our area. The numbers tell the story.
NYSEG says 16,345 or 69% of customers in Chenango County were plunged in darkness overnight because of downed power lines. In Otsego County 13,123 homes and businesses, that’s 51%, lost power due to the storm. And in Delaware County 8,763 customers, or 31%, were without juice to power their furnaces, lights and appliances.
NYSEG says crews are working as fast as possible to restore electricity to affected areas. The company recommends visiting their website https://www.nyseg.com to get the latest information on when power will be restored.
Because of the storm, all Oneonta Public Transit bus service was suspended on Tuesday. Normal operations will resume Wednesday, officials said in a statement.
Parking spots remain available in the Dietz and Wall Streets lots and the municipal parking garage, Oneonta officials said in a statement.
The heavy, wet snow is also presenting potential danger to motorists and pedestrians.
“It was a very heavy snow. And as a result, the weight on tree limbs is snapping these limbs,” Gov. Kathy Hochul said. “It can be dangerous for people walking on the streets or walking under power lines or if people are getting into their cars.” Gov. Hochul is ordering state crews to move into affected parts of New York to help local workers clear roads, remove broken limbs and assist utility crews in restoring electricity.
