BROOKLYN - Hundreds of customers in Brooklyn Heights have no power as the heat wave continues to stifle the borough.

About 500 customers who live between Clark Street and Love Lane lost power at 1 a.m.

Several residents say they had difficulty sleeping last night because they weren't able to use their air conditioners in the heat. Many who live in taller buildings say they were exhausted after having to climb several flights after elevators stopped working.

Con Ed says crews are working to restore power to those affected.
