The Seneca County Office of Emergency Management opened a warming center last night after power remained out for 2,500 households.
The center is located at the Canoga Fire Department (3576 State Route 89) and will re-open 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. today, according to Emergency Management Director Melissa Taylor.
Communities hardest hit by power outages were Varick, Romulus, Ovid, Lodi, and Fayette.
While some communities were showing estimated restoration times of 11 p.m. on January 11, others were still listed under ‘assessing’ through NYSEG’s dashboard.
“Two-thirds of Seneca County NYSEG customers are expected to be restored this evening and the other one-third by tomorrow evening,” Taylor said in an email to FingerLakes1.com. “Bottled water and dry ice will be available (on a first come, first serve basis) for Seneca County residents to pick up today from 3-6 p.m. at the Canoga Volunteer Fire Department (during the same hours of operation as the Warming Center).”
As of 11 a.m. more than 1,980 were still without power in Seneca County.
