Power outage at train station causes delays on several trains: MTA

NEW YORK – A Con Edison power failure at the Jay St- MetroTech station caused delays on several lines Sunday afternoon.

The A,C, E, F, G, 4, and 5 trains are running with delays in both directions.

Power has since been restored by MTA emergency responders.

The Fire Department was on scene monitoring a transformer “explosion”. No fires have been reported.

Several trains are rerouted and terminate at certain stops:

  • There is no G train service between Court Sq and Church Ave in both directions
  • There is no F train service between 4 Av-9 St and 2nd Ave in both directions
  • Expect delays on A,C, E, F, G, 4, and 5 train service

Con Edison responded to the situation, saying they are aware of the situation and assessing the damages.

“Con Edison is responding to an electric transmission disturbance that affected parts of downtown Brooklyn this afternoon. Crews are reporting damage to electrical equipment in a substation that serves the area, and is aware of impacts to subways and other buildings. The company is working to assess the equipment problems and will provide updates,” said Con Edison in a statement.
