Yonkers, NY – Starting Thursday, July 9, 2009, at 7:00 a.m., Con Edison will make dry ice available to Westchester residents still without power following Tuesday night’s storm, as over 300 crews and contractors continue working on service restoration. Bags of dry ice will be distributed starting at 7 a.m. Thursday in the Sears parking lot at the Cross County Shopping Center in Yonkers.
For residents picking up dry ice, instructions for safe handling and disposal are printed on the paper bag containing the ice. Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide and should be used only in well-ventilated areas. Keep children and pets safely away.
Customers can report power interruptions or service problems online at www.conEd.com, or by calling Con Edison’s toll-free customer service number 1-800-75-CON ED (1-800-752-6633). They can also get estimated restoration times online. When reporting an outage, customers should have their Con Edison account number available, if possible, and report whether their neighbors also have lost power.
