A tree on Secor Lane was toppled by Saturday’s thunderstorm.

On July 30, ConEdison restored power to homes affected by Saturday’s storm around 10:20pm.

Due to Saturday evening’s storms, there was a power outage in Pelham Manor since 7 pm affecting 92 customers.

Multiple wires were taken down when a tree fell on Secor Lane.

“The fast moving storm yesterday evening caused more damage than anticipated throughout the county, which has required Con Edison to call in mutual aid crews for assistance,” according to a statement from the Village of Pelham Manor. “Village leadership will continue to advocate with Con Edison about expediting restoration. We remind everyone that it is critical to treat all downed wires as if they are energized and to stay as far away as possible. Please use caution walking around the neighborhoods.”

Residents using a generator were advised by the village to keep the device away from any structures to prevent carbon monoxide from getting into homes.
