STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Con Edison will be distributing dry ice at several locations in the city Saturday, including one on Staten Island, for customers who remain without power due to Tropical Storm Isaias.

Personnel from the utility will be at the Staten Island Mall handing out the ice from 12:30 to 9 p.m., or for as long as supplies last, the company announced in a press release.

Instructions for safe handling and disposal of dry ice are printed on the bag. Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide and should be used only in well-ventilated areas.

Also, Con Edison will have a mobile information center at each location until 9 p.m., where workers will be available to answer customer questions.

The company asks customers to practice social distancing while waiting on line or speaking with Con Edison representatives

As of 11:15 a.m., there were 4,468 Staten Island customers without power, up slightly from earlier Saturday morning, but down from the nearly 50,000 who lost service during the storm.
