Manhattan Black Out Tonight! Thousands Without Power!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


A widespread power outage Saturday evening left much of Manhattan, including the Upper West Side and Rockefeller Center, without electricity, authorities say.

In the heart of New York City, subway stations went dark, the trains frozen in place, while Broadway shows were brought to a standstill as theaters went dark.along with the lights of Broadway.and Times Square. 

The blackout was reportedly caused by a transformer fire, New York fire officials said. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that the New York Police Department has confirmed there was no foul play, “this was a mechanical issue.” 

By late Saturday night, officials said power was being restored to thousands of customers.

At the height of the outage, about 73,000 customers were affected, according to John McAvoy, CEO of Con Edison. He said the utility hopes to have power “restored to all customers, hopefully, by midnight tonight.”

New York authorities said there were no reports of fatalities or injuries.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told ABC7NY that he is unsure how much longer the city will be without power.

“It’s a great personal inconvenience,” he said. “But it’s also a public safety issue.”

Cuomo said he has directed a state agency to conduct an investigation into the  blackout. He said in a statement that although no injuries have been reported “the fact that it happened at all is unacceptable,” and the Department of Public Service will investigate the blackout.

Cuomo said he has called in the National Guard to help with traffic and safety issues. 

“They (Con Edison) told me earlier it would be one or two hours and now it is several hours,” Cuomo said. “So I just want to make sure we are prepared.” USATODAY
