Sandy Update: Mayor 'Frustrated' by Outages

Harrison Mayor/Supervisor Ron Belmont said more utility crews are making their way into Harrison, but there are still pockets in town without power 11 days after Hurricane Sandy.

It's been 11 days since Hurricane Sandy knocked out power to thousands of Harrison's residents.

Although progress has been made, and many neighborhoods are now restored, Harrison Mayor/Supervisor Ron Belmont said there are still pockets in town going without power.

"As far as I'm concerned, 11 days is much too long to go without electric power," Belmont said in a recorded call to the town's emergency call list. "I am very frustrated, as I know you are, in trying to bring this situation to an end."

Belmont said Con Edison crews are continuing to work throughout town and the number of crews are increasing daily. He added that the Town/Village of Harrison is trying to put more pressure on Con Edison to speed up restoration times.
