TIOGA COUNTY, N.Y. -

Over 25,000 NYSEG customers across New York including  2,273 in Broome, Tioga, Chenango and Delaware counties remain in the dark due to Wednesday windstorms.

The hardest hit area was Erie County, where some 12,000 are still without power.

Nearly all of the 467 outages in Tioga County are in Owego. County officials, who have been working with NYSEG, expect power to be restored by Thursday afternoon. The county doesn't plan to open shelters unless there is a delay.

Anyone who needs assistance is asked to call the county's Office of Emergency Services at 687-2023.
