Rye neighborhood emerges from darkness brought on by Ernesto
The lights came on Thursday night in about 500 homes and businesses throughout Westchester, including a Rye neighborhood where some are growing weary of Con Ed.
Crews arrived at Kirby Lane six days after the storm blew through, snapping a utility pole in half. Some residents say it's inexcusable that Con Ed took so long to respond to the potentially dangerous situation. However, others say they understand the company had its hands full with widespread outages.The chairman of the New York State Public Service Commission is calling for an independent audit of Con Edison's emergency planning, response and restoration plans.
