Power outages continue to affect Westchester residents

Nearly two weeks after a strong wind storm knocked out power, many Westchester residents are still waiting for the lights to come back on.

In an effort to find out why thousands were left in the dark, local officials organized a task force and teamed up with civic organizations to meet with Con Edison. Many residents say the biggest problem was a breakdown in communications.

Residents say Con Ed representatives repeatedly told them power would be restored only to find they were still left in the cold and dark. State representative Lou Mosiello says he hopes that these meetings will help prevent future problems.
