MAMARONECK VILLAGE: The village lifted its evacuation order today, but is keeping a declared state of emergency in effect through midnight.
Con Edison estimated it will take at least a day, perhaps several, to restore power village-wide. About 2,200 customers in the village were without electricity this morning, down from at least 4,000 — or more than half the village — last night. To report an outage, call 1-800-75-CON-ED or visit http://www.coned.com/.
Most if not all flooded village roads are now clear, and there’s no further risk of storm-surge flooding from Long Island Sound.
Crews will be removing debris from the roads over the next one to two weeks. Due to limited staff and equipment, however, the village is not providing pump-outs, so flooded property owners will have to get those services from private contractors. There will be special pick-ups of storm-destroyed property through at least Friday, Sept. 2. All garbage and debris should be dried out as best as possible, bagged or bundled, and left at the curb. Cans of liquid paint and hazardous materials of any kind will not be picked up.
Dry ice will be distributed until 7 p.m. tonight at the Mamaroneck Metro-North train station at Mamaroneck and Halstead avenues.
Officials have asked residents to document and photograph all losses and email the information to email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org. The village will give that info to the Federal Emergency Management Agency the Army Corps of Engineers as part of their flood remediation study, and will use it to seek future funding for flood mitigation improvements.
Leaf blower restrictions are suspended until 6 p.m. Sept. 3.
MAMARONECK TOWN: Con Edison has yet to give town officials a timeline for restoring power.
Garbage pickup will follow a normal schedule, though service may be spotty in storm-damaged areas. Residents may bring trash to the Maxwell Avenue facility from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays (except Wednesdays) and from 8 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Saturdays. Steer clear of downed power lines and trees.
Town court will be open tonight, and town center is scheduled to re-open at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
LARCHMONT: The village is working with Con Ed to restore power, but has not provided a timeline for completing the work.
Parking regulations are back in effect in all municipal lots.
Garbage collection may be delayed due to flooded streets and fallen tree limbs. Residents should bag organic waste and leave it at the curb no sooner than the night before their second garbage collection day. The village is lifting a ban on leaf blowers until Sept. 10 to allow residents to clear debris.
