At least 42,000 Manhattan residents have been absorbed yesterday after losing electricity, affecting performances at Broadway theater, subway operations including around Times Square, Con Edison’s utility company said.

The mayor, Bill de Blasio, said on Twitter the supply disruption was caused by fires in underground cable holes but then told CNN the cause was still being investigated.

“There seems to be something wrong with the way they supply power from one city to another to meet demand,” de Blasio said.

“While Con Edison is working to restore electricity in Manhattan, we encourage people to avoid underground stations,” Metropolitan Transportation authorities said on Twitter.

Electricity disruption affects most of western Manhattan, especially neighborhoods around Hell’s Kitchen and the Broadway theater district.
