NYSEG restores power to all WNY customers


Officials of New York State Electric and Gas say power has been restored to all customers who were affected by last Wednesday's wind storm.

In a statement released Saturday night, NYSEG said crews will continue to do some clean-up work and inspections. Utility officials say they appreciate their customers' "patience and understanding."

Still, some local officials weren't pleased with NYSEG's response. Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said he and his department heads failed to receive accurate information about the status of the power outages.
