800-Plus Con Ed Customers in Brooklyn Without Power Early Monday; 248 in Queens

Mr. Con Ed
 Early Monday morning, 838 Brooklyn Consolidated Edison customers were in the dark, a result of 149 power outages scattered across the borough.

Some big problem areas: On Third Street near Seventh Ave., 161 customers are experiencing a partial outage; on Eighth Ave. near President Street, 55 customers are out of power. A burning manhole took out 91 customers on W. 10th Street near Kings Highway. 28 customers have no power at 16th and Cropsey Avenues.

Manholes are blowing all over the place, causing small power outages all over -- in Vinegar Hill, Prospect Lefferts, Flatbush, Midwood, New Utrecht, Dyker Heights, etc.

In Queens, 248 Con Ed customers were without power.

On Saturday afternoon, more than 7,500 Dyker Heights customers were left in the dark for just an hour or so, after problems with overhead wires.
