1. Do they know what caused the blackout?

3. Transformer fire on the west side.

Something exploded under a manhole. No explanation as to what triggered it.

4. Thank you. It's got to be hella scary with it covering so much of an area, that is usually

quite bright.

2. Really not a major problem. Just a power outage in a small area of Manhattan.

Only bit of devastation was the Broadway shows that were canceled. Imagine you got tix to Hamilton a year ago and tonight the lights went out. Oy!

6. The most scary part to me

is that it's 42 years to the day since the 1977 NY power outage
