Parts of New York City suddenly lost power early Friday. CBS New York reports tens of thousands of people woke up without power Friday morning, including customers on the Upper East Side, Harlem and the Upper West Side.
A viewer from Middle Village, Queens told CBS New York her neighborhood also lost power and she heard a loud "boom."
Con Edison said the power outage took place at 5:13 a.m. and was restored by 6:30 a.m. In a statement, the utility said it was investigating a "problem on our transmission system that caused three networks in Manhattan to lose their electric supply."
The MTA says the outage disrupted service on the A, B, C, D, 1, 2 & 3 train lines in Manhattan.
