Hurricane Sandy: 6 Million Currently Without Power
In addition to these overwhelming misfortunes, mass blackouts were caused by down power lines and the explosion at Consolidated Edison substation located on Manhattan’s East River. You can see footage of the explosion in this YouTube video:
Consolidated Edison Inc. has said that some customers may be without power for a week. Sara Banda of Consolidated Edison says “This is the largest storm-related outage in our history.”
We’ve had customers from areas hit by the hurricane calling about solar powered generators, such as the Ecotricity Eco1800S, Solar Powered Generator. Times like this remind us to prepare as best we can for emergency situations.
Our thoughts are with the families who have lost loved ones and we wish for a safe, swift recovery for the communities affected by Hurricane Sandy.
