Map Shows Multiple Power Outages In Gravesend And Manhattan Beach, Scattered Power Outages In Bensonhurst

The  above screen shot of a map from Con Edison’s website shows a number of power outages in Gravesend and Manhattan Beach. The map also indicates scattered power outages in Bensonhurst.

Fortunately, there have been no wide scale shutdowns of electric service, which could very well change as the night goes on and Irene, which is still categorized as a Category 1 hurricane, bears down on Southern Brooklyn.

On a side note, we find it curious that on the map, Con Ed refers to Brighton Beach as Little Odessa. Maybe it’s because Russians don’t surrender?
