Bloomberg: Be patient with Con Edison
Mayor Michael Bloomberg updated city residents from the Office of Emergency Management offices in downtown Brooklyn earlier this evening.
He asked for patience from residents who have experienced power outages and assured that Con Edison officials will begin working to restore power tomorrow. As of 7:30 p.m. Tuesday evening, 87,112 Brooklyn residents are without power.
The mayor also asked that residents do not go to city parks due to dangerous debris and hanging tree limbs.
