Heavy snow and fallen trees have caused numerous power outages in Dutchess County, affecting nearly 10% of Central-Hudson’s coverage area.
Residents of Wappingers Falls told News 12 about some close calls involving fallen trees, one of which took out a transformer and knocked out power.
“This time I think it’s going to be a while. And the power was pulled off my house, which means I’ll have to call an electrician,” said Anne Pantaline, a resident of Nelson Street.
A Central-Hudson spokesperson says it brought in 550 additional utility workers to address the outages and are advising customers to expect temporary outages over the next few hours.
A few neighbors considered going to a hotel to ride out the outages, but after seeing how quickly power was restored in some neighborhoods, they chose to stay home.
