The Westchester County Center is open as a warming center for those still dealing with the effects of Friday's nor'easter.
People there can get a cup of hot coffee, charge a phone and keep warm for a few hours.
Authorities called on Con Edison and NYSEG Monday as thousands of homes were still without power following Friday's storm.
As of Monday night, more than 33,000 Con Edison customers and nearly 15,000 NYSEG customers were in the dark county-wide.
"The county executive is calling on both companies to bring in more crews and have workers around the clock to restore power to the people of Westchester," said Director of Operations Joan McDonald.
