Downed power lines have caused more than 2,500 Queens residents to lose power.

More than 2,000 Queens residents are without power thanks to a powerful storm that swept through the area with high winds, rain and hail.

Downed power lines have knocked out electricity for approximately 1,000 Con Edison customers in both Fresh Meadows and Middle Village.

A spokesperson for the company said overhead wires are susceptible to braches, rain and hail during thunderstorms.

Con Ed workers are currently at the scene.

The company estimated the power will be restored in these areas by approximately 3 a.m.

Outages of this sort are easier to restore than infrastructure problems, the spokesperson said.

These are not the only areas experiencing problems from the storm; nearly 500 residents in Maspeth are without power along with 50 in Clearview.

Other outages are scattered throughout the borough.
