The outages were concentrated in the Mohegan Lake area of Cortlandt. Neither the Village of Croton-on-Hudson nor the Village of Buchanan had any reported outages as of 2:50 p.m. Wednesday.

Con Edison did not provided a time estimate for when service would be restored to the Mohegan Lake customers.

The utility also reported outages in nearby Yorktown, where 23 customers were without power.
