Lights Went Out In New York City

Power was fully restored in New York early Sunday after an outage left parts of the city in darkness for hours, leaving thousands trapped in subway cars and elevators, and people guiding traffic at intersections.

STARTED SAT EVENING

The outage started Saturday evening and the lights were back on shortly after midnight, officials said. It mostly affected midtown Manhattan and parts of the Upper West Side. No injuries were reported.

LOPEZ’S CONCERT

People spilled out into the streets as lights suddenly dimmed at Broadway shows and speakers fell silent at Jennifer Lopez’s concert. Even the flashing lights at the iconic Times Square went dark, leaving the area surrounded by the glow of cellphones taking photos of the surreal scene.  Lopez said she was disappointed she had to cancel her concert on her second night at Madison Square Garden. She rescheduled it for Monday night“I’m devastated and heartbroken right now,” she said. “I just don’t even know what to say. … Obviously it was beyond all our control.”

When the lights flicked back on, crowds erupted into cheers in some places.

WHAT DID YOU DO?

What did I do on Saturday – spent these hours of the blackout switching between CNN and MSNBC!   I turned the TV on to find a movie to watch just as the lights went out in New York and I just couldn’t let it go – So, what did you do on Saturday evening?
