Power back in Manhattan after huge power outage

A power outage that gripped New York’s Manhattan ended on Saturday after it plunged Broadway theaters into darkness, brought subways to a halt and flicked off billboards in Times Square. About 42,000 customers lost electricity in the early evening, according to power utility Con Edison. The power returned around 10:00 pm (0200 GMT), accompanied by applause that could be heard throughout the formerly darkened streets. Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Twitter that the outage was caused by a “manhole fire,” but later told CNN it was under investigation. The blackout disrupted services including transportation across the United States’s most-populous city.
