NEW YORK CITY (PIX11/AP) — Power was temporarily lost in the New York City subway system Wednesday morning, causing every line to be delayed, according to the MTA.
Con Edison is investigating what caused the “voltage dip” that happened at 9:45 a.m. and lasted about five minutes. It wasn’t clear whether the hot weather played a role in the problem.
Power was restored to trains and they were running again soon thereafter with residual delays.
Still, seeing a line of red “Delays” on the MTA site and getting stuck — no matter how briefly — underground was enough to cause a slight, short-lived panic among straphangers.AlertMe
