Power restored to almost all Brooklyn customers

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK - Power has been restored to nearly all the 1,100 Consolidated Edison utility customers who lost electricity in several Brooklyn neighborhoods. Con Edison says all but about 15 of the customers have service.

Up to nearly 2,000 customers had been without power beginning the morning of July 20.

People in the Sunset Park, Bay Ridge, Borough Park and Park Slope neighborhoods had been asked to stop using all nonessential electrical appliances, including air conditioning.

The utility says as of Sunday night it suspended its request for those customers to reduce their electricity use.

Con Ed says it had reduced voltage in the area by 8 percent while failed electrical lines were being repaired.
