2pm Conference Call with Con Edison

Martin J. Golden

August 28, 2011

Just finished conference call - some points from the call are that there

are 13,683 without power in Brooklyn


-Con Edison is moving into the restoration phase at this point and will be

accessing damage and dispatching crews over the next few hours -


- locations in Marine Park without power and without traffic lights, as

well as tree down on car on East 36th Street have been reported (some

already were by our office)



-They are coordinating with Parks and Con Edison regarding trees

-200 tree crews on stand by to clear lines and open roadways


-continue to prioritize based on how many people would get power restored -

obviously the more go first


- one million and a half people without power in Metropolitan region so

will not be seeing assistance from other local utilities as they are

experiencing same circumstances


- would like to continue to stress to constituents that if they see lines

down, do not touch them - one fatality in Rockland County


- also once it becomes dark they will only work to a certain degree


-they have crews from as far away as Texas here to help


- next call tomorrow at 10:00 am. Will forward any additional information I

may get
