Croton-on-Hudson neighborhood still in the dark after storm

A Croton-on-Hudson neighborhood hit hard by the recent storm is fighting to have electricity restored after the wind and snow knocked down transformers and utility poles.The area around Brook Street has been in the dark since the snowstorm hit Saturday. Neighbors say power lines snapped like twigs under the weight of heavy snow and tree branches. "We're all frustrated and we want Con Ed to get this up and running," says resident Yvonne Martinez.Village Manager Abraham Zambrano says he's been in constant contact with Con Edison. He says it's likely going to take a few days to have the power completely restored, considering the severity of the damage. Alex DaCosta, 10, isn't happy with the delay. He says it's just as cold inside his home now as it is outside. The village has opened a warming center at the municipal building for residents who have no heat in their homes.
