Power outages linger after storm
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Power is slowly being restored to hard-hit communities in the tri-state area. Downed trees and toppled power lines are just part of the mess that residents in Westchester County and New Jersey are still cleaning up.

PSE&G: 4,600 without power, mostly in Newark, Nutley Belleville
JCP&L: 200, mostly in Summit, Short Hills, Millburn and Berkeley Heights
Connecticut -- 2,388

Westchester -- 80
Rockland and Putnam -- none
Delaware, Orange, Sullivan and Ulster -- 3,785. Restoration 6 p.m. Friday
Con Ed says power has been restored to thousands of customers who lost power during Tuesday night's storms.
Spokeswoman Elizabeth Clark says most of the roughly 18,500 customers in Westchester County and the Bronx have power again.
She says about 200 customers still are without power because utility workers are having trouble accessing equipment.
On Wednesday tens of thousands of households on the Rockaway Peninsula and on Long Island briefly lost power because of a blackout traced to a substation in Valley Stream.
A spokesman for the Long Island Power Authority said power was restored after about 30 minutes. Upwards of 70,000 customers in the Rockaways and in southwest Nassau County on Long Island were affected.
