Manhattan power outage affects tens of thousands, subway system

14 Juillet, 2019, 04:39 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

But that means many more people have no power, as one "customer" can represent a great many more people.

Consolidated Edison Inc, New York City's power provider, said in a post on Twitter that it is "responding to extensive outages" on west of Central park in Manhattan and that it is working to restore power to 42,000 customers.

The temperature was warm, above 80 even as the sun set, but not as steaming as Manhattan can get in July.

A massive power outage possibly caused by a manhole explosion has plunged a swath of Manhattan's West Side into darkness, including the famed signs in Times Square and a number of subway stations, leaving thousands without electricity on a hot Saturday evening.

Police officers and civilians worked together to direct traffic while firetrucks and ambulances screamed down side streets.

The New York City Fire Department said the fire started at West 64th Street and West End Avenue but did not say if that was the source of the outage.

The outage occurred on the 42nd anniversary of a NY blackout that crippled almost the entire city during a heat wave on July 13, 1977.

Several Broadway and off-Broadway shows said they were canceling performances, according to tweets aggregated by The Broadway League.

"You could see all the theater lights across the street, all the marquees went out".

CBS2 has learned that all restaurants have gone dark in Hell's Kitchen.

The outages were affecting "multiple lines", the MTA said.

Con Edison did not immediately respond to phone messages, and it was not clear how far the outages reached.

Screens in Times Square are black during a widespread power outage, Saturday, July 13, 2019, in NY.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority tweeted Saturday evening that signals on the A, B, C, D, E, F, and M subway lines were affected and four stations were closed to the public due to lack of power: 59th St-Columbus Circle, 47-50th Sts-Rockefeller Ctr, 34th St-Hudson Yards, and 5th Av/53rd St.
