Disclaimer

11/10/13 - I have not been maintaining this gem, and I'm not sure that the Coned endpoints are still available. It may not work as expected.

Sandy

Build Status Code Climate

Sandy is a rubygem for consuming power outage data for the Greater New York area. For a given area, retrieve number of outages, as well as total customers, lat/lng, and estimated time of recovery (depending on the provider).

Currently supports ConEd (NYC), LIPA (Long Island), and PSEG (NJ).

Usage

Providers

Sandy::Provider::LIPA::Report.new
Sandy::Provider::ConEd::Report.new

Areas

Area#name
Area#customers_affected
Area#region
Area#latitude
Area#longitude
Area#total_customers
Area#estimated_recovery_time

Example

report = Sandy::Provider::ConEd::Report.new

areas = report.areas
areas.each do |area|
  puts "#{area.name}, #{area.customers_affected}"
end

# => 

Bronx, 28644
Brooklyn, 37016
Manhattan, 226225
Queens, 85057
Staten Island, 58043
Westchester, 123571

A note on Polling

The ConEd outage feed is only updated every 15 minutes. Repeated polling won't get you new results.

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
