The power outage occurred at about 9:25 a.m. on Jan. 23 in an area generally bounded by 54th Avenue on the north; 57th Avenue on the south; 82nd Street on the west and 85th Street on the east.

According to Allan Drury of Con Edison, the utility dispatched a crew to investigate calls of the outage and found a number of overhead lines damaged. There’s no word yet on what caused it.
