Con Edison Says Power Restored Locally

A line of storms left about 240 people without power Thursday night.

Power is back after a strong batch of threatening storms brought strong winds and heavy rains through the area Thursday evening, according to reports from Consolidated Edison.

The storm left about 240 of the power company's customers without power in Harrison at about 8 p.m. Power was restored to those homes by early Friday morning, estimates say.

The National Weather Service had warned of severe thunderstorms for most of the day Thursday. A dark cloud of storms swept into the area at about 7:30 p.m., bringing a quick downpour, rains and lightening.

A tree was down on North Street at about 7:45 p.m., but was cleared by early in the evening. After reports of a handful of trouble spots at that time, Con Edison was reporting less than 10 people without power in Westchester County by 8 a.m. Friday.

Although there was a break from the wild weather over night, it could return for the weekend. The National Weather Service is again predicting a chance of thunderstorms on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
