Spring Valley – Residents still without power rallied outside of Orange & Rockland’s headquarters in Rockland County today.
According to power company officials, more than 20,000 households in both counties do not have electricity. With below-freezing temperatures hitting the region, residents and community leaders say they are livid.
“Every time we call, they tell us a different time, and it keeps getting later and later,” says Jim Johnson, of Pearl River.
Former Rockland Assemblyman Ryan Karben is still in the dark, and says he started a Facebook page called, “Fed Up and Freezing in Rockland.”
A company spokesman says he sympathizes with customers, and that double the normal number of crews are in the streets repairing the outages.
