Con Ed Could Shut Off Electrical Power Downtown After 8 p.m.
More on the possible electrical power outages being weighed by Con Ed this evening. It’s possible that residents living east of Broadway between Wall Street and the tip of Manhattan and Wall Street to the East River will lose power after 8 p.m. Con Ed has been advising customers of the prospect via robo-calls, but it appears that no definite decisions have been made.
A short time ago management at the Seward Park Cooperative (a 1700 apartment complex on Grand Street) advised residents that Con Ed was anticipating the shutdown due to flooding in power stations serving Lower Manhattan. We’re trying to learn more information and will update as soon as possible.
