    GOD DAMNIT!!!!!

    The recording said they may shut off power to prevent damage to electricity lines. MUTHERFUCKER!!!

    Just started charging my phone just in case (although a power shut down would affect the cell phone towers in my area).

    Con Ed Just Called A Bunch Of New Yorkers Warning About Possible Power Shutdowns

    Joe Weisenthal | 29 minutes ago | 2,058 | 3


    A bunch of people on Twitter have said that they got called from Con Ed about a possible power outage in Lower Manhattan.
    I just got one too.

    I didn't get the whole thing recorded, but it was basically
    "Due to damage caused by hurricane sandy... Con Edison may need to turn off electricity to lower Manhattan today. Please turn off all major appliances to avoid major damage when power
    is restored."

    Meanwhile, Con Ed has a cool live map showing power outages around the grid, which you can find here.

    Sounds smart to me, quicker and easier to restore if it's not damaged worse than it needs to be.
