Electricity restored after tree knocks out power

Power has been restored for some people in Yonkers who woke up with no electricity Wednesday morning.

A large tree came crashing down on Bryant Road at around midnight. The tree snapped a pole with a transformer and took out power to about 55 customers in the area.

Con Edison crews were able to restore electricity to all of the affected homes.

At least four cars sustained minor scratches from the tree's limbs.
