Con Edison Restores Almost All From Southeast Brooklyn Outage Even as New Storm Wreaks Havoc
Con Edison has restored power to over 99 percent of the 33,000 customers affected by yesterday’s outage in southeast Brooklyn neighborhoods, including Canarsie, Flatlands, Mill Basin, Old Mill Basin, Bergen Beach and Georgetown.
Today’s thunderstorms have resulted in about 11,000 new outages system-wide, affecting some of the customers previously restored. Crews continue to work around the clock addressing the outages as quickly as possible. Across the entire service area, just over 15,000 customers now remain without power.
Safety remains the number one priority throughout the storm recovery effort, with Con Edison emphasizing avoiding downed wires in the wake of the afternoon and early evening storms. Adults should remember to advise children and others at risk to be extra careful, and to safeguard pets as well.
