Lewisboro officials announced Sunday night that a state of emergency continues in the town following Saturdays pre-Halloween snow storm. Councilman and Deputy Lewisboro Supervisor Peter DeLucia said there are still dozens of trees and power lines that must be removed and residents are being urged to stay off local roads while NYSEG crews continue to clean up.
As of 9 p.m. Sunday evening, approximately 90 percent of NYSEG customers in Lewisboro were in the dark, said DeLucia. In addition to the continued state of emergency, he said town officials are urging residents not to trick-or-treat Monday night. DeLucia said many residents have been using generators that have inadvertently caused downed wires to go live and that could creating a safety hazard for young trick-or-treaters.
Residents who need a warm place for shelter can use the firehouses in Goldens Bridge, Vista and South Salem. On Monday, town offices will be closed in Lewisboro but the Townhouse will be open.
