2,500 Con Ed customers temporarily lose power in Mount Vernon
Con Ed crews worked throughout Monday to restore power to 2,500 customers in Mount Vernon.
The customers in the Fleetwood neighborhood were left without power and without air conditioning on a day when temperatures hit almost 90 degrees in some areas.
Neighbors along Broad Street say they saw a transformer blow.
Tony Ribeiro, the owner of Swirls and Scoops on West Broad Street, says that the outage combined with the hot weather was a pain to deal with.
Officials say power has been restored to the area.
