New York Times’ report on cause of NYC blackout:

“Con Edison said the failure apparently stemmed from a problem at a substation on West 49th Street, and affected six power sectors.

“John McAvoy, Con Edison’s chairman and chief executive, suggested it was a mechanical failure but emphasized that the utility would not know the cause until an investigation was completed.

“Gov. Andrew Cuomo was more specific, saying the failure started with an explosion and fire at a substation that caused other substations to ‘“lose power and malfunction.’”
