Despite the efforts of National Grid crews aided by crews from outside the area, power outages persist across the north country especially in western and northern Jefferson County.
According to National Grid figures posted at 3:30, more than 18,000 customers were without power. The river towns, Pillar Point and the outskirts of Sackets Harbor are now the areas where there are the most outages. The region along the lake from Dexter to the town of Ellisburg has seen significant restoration of service.
The company website indicates power in some areas may not be restored until midmorning Tuesday.
