HANCOCK, N.Y. (WBNG) -- Power outages are still a problem for hundreds of utility customers in Delaware County. 

As of 6 p.m. Monday, there were 927 customers without power according to NYSEG. You can follow along with the latest updates here

The town of Hancock is where more than half the outages were listed. Nick Hazen lives in Hancock and said he had his generators running all weekend. 

"You gotta get water to flush the toilet. You walk over to the light switch and hit it and forget you don't have it," Hazen said. "I mean just making a cup of coffee is hard."

According to NYSEG President and CEO Carl Taylor, the estimated time of restoration is set for around midnight Tuesday.  Additional damage including downed power lines, broken poles and tree limbs are the cause of the delays.

Just down the road in Long Eddy, firefighters have begun to welcome anyone who has been impacted by outages. The Long Eddy Hose Company building is open to anyone in need.

"We are setting up a warming station so anyone can come charge their devices, get some water," said Josephine Eaton, a volunteer firefighter. "We will have some sandwiches and bottled water to give out."

Eaton encourages anyone to come get help at any time, but to also act soon.
