Power Restored After Outage Struck Major Sections Of Manhattan
Power was restored to the heart of New York City after a major outage impacted an estimated 72,000 customers, mostly in Manhattan's midtown and Upper West Side.
Con Edison said it completed power restoration to all customers on the West Side of Manhattan shortly before midnight and the last of six electrical networks was back in service.
The company's CEO John McAvoy earlier told reporters all customers should have their power restored by midnight. As he spoke in midtown, a flash of lights came on, and people in the street cheered.
