DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN - An office building housing state agencies for disability assistance and worker's compensation remains closed following a power outage Wednesday morning.

Con Edison says water leaked onto an electrical panel at 111 Livingston St. in Downtown Brooklyn, causing the outage at around 9 a.m.

The outage also trapped people in elevators, who were eventually rescued by the FDNY.

The FDNY says no one was injured during the outage. It's not known when workers will be able to repair the outage and visitors have been advised to reschedule their appointments.
