NYSEG Continues Power Restoration
ELMIRA, NY (WENY)---NYSEG says they're in the homestretch of getting power restored to those affected by last week's storms.
More than 800 people are still without power this morning---401 in Steuben County, 415 in Chemung County and ten in Tioga County, New York. As the restoration process continues, NYSEG urges customers to stay away from downed power lines. Even though some lines may appear dead they can still be deadly.
NYSEG customers should call 1-800-572-1131 to report downed power lines or other hazardous situations. NYSEG would also like to remind you that emergency generators can be dangerous. Please follow manufacturer's instructors when operating an emergency generator. Also, never run emergency generators indoors; operate them only outdoors in well-ventilated areas and away from windows and doors.
