Heavy wind and rain causes power outages, downed tree; county issues warning on storm

A heavy wind and rain storm persisted throughout the area Wednesday and into Thursday, causing power outages, flooding and at least one downed tree on Washington Avenue.

As of midday Thursday, 2.55 inches of rain had fallen in New Rochelle, said the National Weather Service.

At 9:41 a.m., the Village of Pelham Manor reported a small number of homes were without power and there were road closures through out the village, including Pelhamdale Avenue near the intersection of Bolton Road, Edgewood Avenue, and Park Lane.

“These road closures are due to downed trees with potentially live wires entangled through them,” said the village in an email. “Do not go near downed wires, assume they are energized! Village representatives are working closely with Con Edison for storm restoration.”

According to an emailed weather alert from Westchester County Executive George Latimer’s office Wednesday evening, “Already saturated grounds combined with forceful wind gusts could cause downed trees, power lines and power outages.”

The email also warned of possible road closures, particularly the Bronx River Parkway and Saw Mill River Parkway.
