New York power cut: Supply restored in Manhattan

Power has now been restored to all customers after a power failure in New York halted subway trains and trapped people in lifts on yesterday evening. Energy company Con Edison said more than 70,000 homes and businesses lost power in Manhattan, the most densely populated of the city’s five boroughs. The outage lasted for about five hours. It came on the anniversary of a massive power failure in 1977 that plunged the New York skyline into darkness and triggered widespread looting and arson. Shortly before midnight Con Edison head said all six networks which had been affected were now up and running.
