Power restored in parts of NYC following Storm Sandy

New York power company Consolidated Edison Inc restored power to about 2,000 homes in lower Manhattan and 28,200 in the Brighton Beach area of Brooklyn on Wednesday afternoon, it said in a statement.
Two of the underground electrical networks, taken out of service on Monday night due to floodwater from Storm Sandy, were restored to service.
The utility noted that some buildings may still be without electricity due to basement flooding or damage to equipment.
