The aftermath of Isaias is far from over as more than 110,000 customers are still without power across the Hudson Valley.
Communities across the Hudson Valley are also still dealing with dozens of roads that are still blocked with trees and power lines.
In Yorktown, the highway department has spent the last few days clearing more than 50 roads to make way for the utility companies to work on the lines.

Both Con Edison and NYSEG say they expect to restore power in Yorktown by the end of this weekend.
However, Yorktown Deputy Supervisor Tom Diana doesn't think utility companies are moving fast enough. "We watched the trees come down and so forth with no response from our utilities. Our utility companies have been lackluster at best," says Diana.
The town's Highway Department says they have cleared 50 roads in the last 24 hours.
More than 60% of the town lost power, according to officials, with thousands still out.
Here are the outages as of 9:30 p.m.
