Snow and high winds knocked out power to thousands more Queens residents.

Efforts to restore power to the thousands of Queens residents still without electricity was dealt another blow yesterday when another storm swept through the area, halting recovery efforts and adding thousands to the list of those without lights.

Con Edison restored power to about 90 percent of those tho lost electricity during Sandy before a nor’easter poured several inches of snow on the borough.  An additional 9,000 residents in Queens had their power knocked out yesterday by the storms high wind, heavy snow and rain.

Restorations were delayed temporarily yesterday due to the storm’s high winds making it unsafe for crews working on overhead equipment, Con Ed said.

Crews got back to work last night when the winds died down, a spokesperson said.  The company expects all customers, including those who lost power yesterday, to have power restored by the weekend.
