De Blasio, Cuomo Call For Investigation Into Manhattan Blackout


New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo are calling for an investigation into a widespread power outage that hit midtown Manhattan Saturday night.

“With the power back on, I’ve directed City agencies to investigate this evening’s blackout. They’ll work with ConEd to get to the bottom of what happened tonight and prevent another widespread outage like this,” de Blasio tweeted after returning to the city from the campaign trail in Iowa.

“You just can’t have a power outage of this magnitude in this city” Cuomo said, according to The Associated Press. “It is too dangerous, the potential for public safety risk and chaos is too high, we just can’t have a system that does that, it’s that simple at the end of the day.”

No injuries were reported during the outage, which lasted about five hours and affected about 45,000 customers, according to the AP.

  1. Silly for Cuomo to investigate because it was some political move behind it, either from the Black Hats or White Hats, the anti-Trump or pro-Trump. Will find out from Real News.

  2. The blackout was an assassination attempt on Jeffrey Epstein who is being held at the federal lockup in Manhattan. The criminal elite are afraid he’ll reveal the names of those who went to his corrupt island.
