Nathan Mayberg reports in the Register Star power was restored to most locations in Columbia County, Wed., Oct. 31, following Superstorm Sandy, Mon., Oct. 29. One notable exception was the town of Ancram on the southern end of the county, where nearly 400 customers of Central Hudson Gas & Electric remain in the dark. More than 11,000 Central Hudson households in Ulster County, and more than 3,000 in Dutchess County also remain without power. Central Hudson reportedly expects to have the lights back on by Friday. Both NYSEG and National Grid restored power to all but a few of their customers, as of Wednesday evening. Dry ice and water are still available for Ancram residents at the Ancram Firehouse, located at 1325 county Route 7. Read the full story in the Register Star.
