Millions Without Power #sandy

Millions Without Power in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut After Storm – WSJ.com.

Consolidated Edison Inc. officials said the utility serving the New York City area is first focusing on repairing feeders distributing power to the New York Stock Exchange and then restoring power to networks at the southern tip of Lower Manhattan.

For customers in other darkened neighborhoods below Midtown, where power was knocked out Monday night by an explosion at a substation on East 14th Street, the path toward power remained a mystery on Tuesday morning.

With winds settling down to 15 mph to 30 mph, Con Ed faced the daunting task of restoring service to more than half a million New York City residents left in the dark by the storm.

More than 230,000 Con Ed customers in Manhattan’s lower half remained without power Tuesday morning. Widespread power failures also plague Staten Island, with nearly half the borough’s energy customers in the dark.

Everything below 39th street in Manhattan is still dark, no power, net or cell here, we have a few more Mintyboosts left, but we’ll be running out of power soon 🙁

It’ erie and quiet.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Well, look on the bright side – at least there’s no zombies wandering around trying to eat your brains, right?

    Um… Right????
