After announcing this morning that it was considering proactive shutdowns of power in lower Manhattan, Con Edison is now saying it will not take action prior to Hurricane Irene’s arrival unless absolutely necessary.

If downtown substations need to be deactivated to protect them from flooding, about 6,000 customers south of the Brooklyn Bridge and east of Broadway to the East River would be affected, a spokesperson told The New York Times City Room blog this afternoon. Also, Con Ed has posted a map of power outages, which is constantly updating.
