Governor applauds Westchester residents during crisis

Governor Pataki (R-NY) says he is proud of the people of Westchester and all New Yorkers.

Pataki commended Westchester residents and officials for their cooperation and quick response during the crisis. He says the blackout crisis is not yet over, but that he is confident residents will continue to do their part by conserving energy.

Although parts of Westchester have power, there are a number of areas still without power and there are rolling blackouts being reported. So, the governor urged all residents to conserve by turning off air conditioners, appliances and any lights that do not need to be on.

Right now, state and federal officials are investigating what caused power to go out along the eastern seaboard.
