Downed lines placing whole streets out of power. Fallen trees blocking and closing dozens of roadways around Scarsdale. Starting Thursday night, a powerful storm known as a Nor’Easter swept over the East Coast, unleashing a torrent of varying forms of precipitation, terrifying winds, and even floods in some places.

Scarsdale faced a strange combination of snow, sleet and rain. On Friday afternoon, students went home after all after-school activities were cancelled. A State of Emergency was declared in Westchester, and later, Scarsdale also announced one at 5:30.

As the storm progressed, winds as high as 90 mph brought down both trees and powerlines, creating hazardous road conditions, damaging property, and putting out power all around Scarsdale. At one point on Friday, ConEd stated that as many as 1,345 customers in Scarsdale were without power, about a third of the village.

Affected families found various ways to try to deal with the absence of electricity, as ConEd workers began to assess and fix damages. Some families decided to stay temporarily in hotels. Others coped by visiting the Scarsdale Library to charge devices and use an internet connection.

Although the most tumultuous portion of the storm seems to have passed, its effects are still seen around town, and the recovery process is currently underway. SHS principal Kenneth Bonamo recently sent out an email stating that homework, assignments and tests would all be pushed back one day, to account for students who were unable to work or study as a result of the damages of the storm. In a later phone message sent to Scarsdale students, he added that normal school activities would resume as originally planned, trying to bring students and families back to a sense of normality after the impact of the Nor’Easter.
