Power Outage Snarls Entire NYC Subway System


A power outage at the MTA’s main rail control center is causing delays on all subway lines, agency officials said this afternoon, reports the NY Post.

It is not known how long the power will be out.

Power went out just after 1 p.m. The lack of electricity there means that local power centers and backup rail control stations on individual lines need to pick up the slack, said MTA spokesman Chris McKniff.

The rail control center directly controls all of the numbered subways lines, so the delays on those are most severe, reports the Post. But all lines are affected by ripple-effect delays, said officials.
