NYSEG and National Grid crews are still at work restoring power to thousands of customers in Erie, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany counties, after a storm dumped several inches of wet snow Thursday night and Friday morning, downing trees and power lines.
NYSEG, according to information on its website, said it had some 3,500 Western New York customers without electricity, with the towns of Colden, Concord and Aurora hardest hit in Erie County. The utility predicted restoration of service by around 11 p.m. Saturday in places where restoration was predicted.
On its website, National Grid indicated early Saturday it still has about 13,000 customers without power, with most in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and a pocket of Allegany County.
