Power is returning to Mount Kisco residents, but for those without power, many living in Mount Kisco Chase and in Captain Merritt Hill, it is taking forever. As of Friday morning, according to Con Ed outage maps, approximately 650 out of 5,075 Con Edison customers were without power in Mount Kisco, down from approximately 1,000 on Thursday morning. Hopefully, a few several hundred more customers can get power on Friday.
Gas lines are forming in Mount Kisco. There were significant lines at Mobil and BP on Route 117 in Mount Kisco. Pictures from BP are shown below from Friday morning at 8:00 am. While there may be long lines since many stations are not open, some consumers are acting irrationally. AS the New York Times reported, one consumer was quoted ” ‘I just want to have it, because you don’t know how long this is going to last,’ said Richard Bianchi, waiting in the half-mile line at the Sunoco in Union with a tank that was three-quarters full.”
