ORANGETOWN — A total of 3,200 people in Rockland are still without power late this morning because of the weekend storm.
Most of those homes and business are in Orangetown, where 2,698 power outages are still being worked on, according to Michael Donovan, spokesman for Orange and Rockland Utilities.
Other outages include 136 in South Nyack, 185 in Piermont, 103 in Clarkstown, 22 in Upper Nyack and 6 in Ramapo.
Most people will have their lights back on by the end of the day today, he said.
But some people might not get their power back on until mid-week.
Strong winds brought down numerous trees and power lines, which resulted in loss of electricity throughout the county.
“It looked like wind shear events,” Donovan said. “We saw five poles in a row down in some spots.”
Many trees roots were likely weakened by the heavy rain as well, he said.
Orange and Rockland has 150 crews on the roads fixing storm damage.
At the height of the storm, 21,500 people in Rockland were without power.
Another 4,700 people in the Sparkill area lost power briefly this morning after a fire in a substation on Mountainview Avenue. The fire was not related to the storm, Donovan said.
Power has been restored to all of those residents.
