Power outage in Middle Village
Con Edison has restored power to thousands of Queens residents, after the lights went out for about two hours this afternoon, but with more severe weather on the way, the utility is bracing itself for another long night.
New Yorkers Brace For More Storms, As 200 Remain Without Power
About 11,000 customers lost power in Middle Village shortly after 3:30 p.m., sending Con Ed crews scrambling to get it restored. By the evening commute, only about 200 customers remained in the dark, some of whom have been without power since last night.
Wednesday’s storms also caused damage to homes throughout southeast Queens. A huge tree fell in Jamaica, blocking the entrance to one home on 104th Street and damaging another when it came straight through the roof.
Well, as long as the power was ok on the Upper East Side... how many more days left of summer?
