Power restoration is progressing slowly at two levels

Progress continues to be made in restoring power to tens of thousands of New York State electric and gas customers who have been without service since the April 19 snowstorm hit the part south.

Restoration efforts also continue in northeast Pennsylvania, with some residents being told they may be without service over the weekend.

As of 8 a.m. on April 21, NYSEG reports more than 15,222 people in Broome County alone without power with thousands more in Tioga, Chenango, Cortland and Delaware County still without power.

The utility’s website lists estimated restore times for many as 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. on April 21 and until 11 p.m. on April 22 for some.

Regular updates to the streets can be found at NYSEG.com. Click “Report and Fault” on the home page then select “View Fault List”, do not maps to see a list of counties affected by the disruptions. Once you’ve selected a county, you can specify a municipality and view individual streets and their expected restoration times.

The utility updates the list frequently, but some services may actually be restored or new interruptions may occur that may not be accurately represented in the list.

This morning, Binghamton City Police said many of the West Side streets that the NYSEG noted had the restoration scheduled for 5 a.m. tonight had already been lit.
