NEW YORK - Con Edison says it’s ready to respond to any storm-related outages. 

According to a company spokesperson, field teams are keeping a close eye on manholes. He says that when salt  begins to mix in with its underground system, it can create a bad situation and cause outages in the area. 

Everyone is also reminded to stay away from downed power lines as they may still be active.

Anyone who experiences a power outage should report it right away by calling 1-800-75-CONED, or 1-800-752-6633
