Thousands of New Yorkers are still in the dark as crews begin cleaning up the mess from Saturday’s wind and rain storm that downed power lines and trees across the city.

At one point, more than 57,000 Consolidated Edison customers citywide were without power because of downed trees and power lines.

As of early Sunday evening, the following number of customers were still in the dark – 23,000 in Staten Island; 8,400 in the Bronx; 5,900 in Queens; 3,790 in Brooklyn; and 89 in Manhattan. Staten Island was hit hardest by the weekend storm, with winds gusting up to 60 miles per hour.

A ConEd spokesperson says it may take days for the power to be fully restored to some customers.
