CLARKSTOWN — Nearly a third of Clarkstown is still in the dark after Wednesday's storm, which followed last week's nor'easter.

Officials say that the utility company Orange & Rockland is communicating well, but simply does not have enough resources in the area to quickly return power to residents.

"This has been an overwhelming storm for the entire region, and that they just don't have the assets on the ground that are going to make a quick restoration possible for the most amount of people," said Town Supervisor George Hoehman.

Orange County and New York-state are supporting the town, sending in National Guard members to help with clean-up as residents continue to struggle.

According to Hoehman, Orange & Rockland say they believe that some residents of Clarkstown will be without power through the weekend.
