  • The outage comes amidst a major outage in Brooklyn

The New York Police Division implored residents to rob it easy.

From the Carolinas to ME, daytime highs reached the upper 90s Sunday.

Almost 50,000 New York City residents lost power on Sunday evening as the third day of an intense heat wave grips the city.

Around 30,000 customers in Brooklyn were taken off power Sunday so the utility could make repairs and prevent a bigger outage, Mayor Bill de Blasio had said.

As the heat wave gripped much of the United States (U.S.) on Sunday, power outages reported in multiple states left hundreds of thousands of customers in the dark.

Parts of Brooklyn began losing power just after 5 p.m. local time as the heat index reached a blistering 102, according to the National Weather Service.

Officials want people to refrain from using energy-intensive appliances such as washers, dryers, microwaves and, if not needed for health or medical reasons, air conditioners, until the equipment problems are resolved.

New Yorkers have been taking to social media to voice their concerns.

Tens of thousands of people across NY were left without power amid a heatwave that has put "severe strain" on the city's electrical system. One Twitter user said: "Families sleeping in cars @ConEdison". Some of NY came back online from midnight Monday morning. Equipment failure, not heat, caused the roughly five-hour blackout July 13 that affected a 40-block stretch of Manhattan, including Times Square and Rockefeller Center. According to the Associated Press, equipment failure, and not heat, caused the NY center to go out.

The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Staten Island Sunday night. Rivers are also prone to flooding.

"We have been through this situation with Con Ed time and again, and they should have been better prepared - period", Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a statement. "This was not a natural disaster; there is no excuse for what has happened in Brooklyn".

The mayor said that the city's emergency management was deploying personnel on the ground in case of emergency and to ensure people's safety.
