UPDATE: Netscape Anchors called CONED–it’s a fake!
Just got this email from someone I trust (but don’t know the person they got it from).
- My friend’s dad works for ConEd – he just called and told her not to ride the subways any more today, as we will likely have a blackout. ConEd is sending all non-essential employees home right now so they can shut down power to their building. From yesterday’s heat, Manhattan has 4 feeders out, putting a big strain on the system. He said in his 30 years working there, he’s never seen ConEd act like this, especially at 10:30 in the morning. He said not to panic, but not to take a chance if it can be helped – avoid riding the subway if at all possible.
