Allegany Emergency Management says power restoration within next five hours

BREAKING: The Allegany County Office of Emergency Management says it has been advised, presumably by power companies, that power should be on in most locations in the county by 3PM today.

In a Facebook post at 9:57AM it advises that “We have received word that the estimated time of restoration is approximately 5 hours from now for customers to be back online.”

It also provided the attached chart of outages for Rochester Gas and Electric (RGE) and New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG).

As we reported a short time ago, RGE said it would have an update to Allegany Hope Community News by 9AM but we still are waiting.
