Governor Pataki (R-NY) was in Westchester Friday and vowed to get to the bottom of what caused the massive blackout Thursday. Pataki commended Westchester residents and officials for their cooperation and quick response during the crisis.
Meanwhile, travelers at the Westchester County Airport have had to endure long lines and delays due the blackout. One traveler said he couldn't believe such a crisis could happen in the year 2003. As for the rails, Metro-North service is still suspended.
