Croton-on-Hudson still in the dark after 3 days

Frustration in the Hudson Valley continues to grow as nearly 100,000 people are without power after three days.

Croton-on-Hudson has many of the same problems as cities and towns across the area; a tangled mess of downed power lines, blown transformers and snapped utility poles.

People who live on Brook Street say the utility poles snapped under the weight of the heavy wet snow that fell on Saturday.

The same area saw similar damage during Tropical Storm Irene back in August.

Residents say power company officials from Con Edison were in the neighborhood yesterday and are expected back today. However, they couldn't say when power would be restored.
