that Central Hudson says it will be several days before some of the 38,000 customers without power as of March 8 will get the electricity turned back on. A second snow storm March 7 knocked out power, after a March 2 storm did more damage. Central Hudson spokesperson John Maserjian said the utility has about 280 power line workers on loan from other companies to assist in restoration work, and more than 100 Central Hudson line workers, 150 tree trimmers, and other administrators working to turn the power back on, “a field force of 550 workers throughout the Hudson Valley” in total. Dry ice and bottled water distribution began March 8 in Kingston, Rosendale, and Poughkeepsie. Read the full story in The Daily Freeman.
