THE BRONX -

The worst of the nor'easter was over Saturday, but the Bronx was still dealing with its aftermath.

The storm brought heavy winds that completely uprooted several trees and downed some power lines, affecting many Bronx residents.

Some Bronx residents were without power for 24 hours.  By Saturday evening, more than 3,000 customers were still without power in the Bronx, according to Con Edison’s power outage map.

Con Edison said it was doing everything it could to restore power.
