NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio says nearly 20,000 still without power

Thousands of New Yorkers were left without power on Sunday as the city reached scorching temperatures over 100F degrees. Over 50,000 Con Edison customers across all five New York boroughs and in northern suburbs lost power by 10pm ET on Sunday as temperatures boiled in the 90s and Brooklyn reached a heat index of 102F. Con Ed (bottom right attempting to restore power in the Bronx) cut power to some 30,000 people (inset) in Canarsie, Mill Basin and Flatbush, Brooklyn to make repairs Sunday evening causing governor Andrew Cuomo (left) to rip into the energy company. Power was also knocked out for more than 800,000 Michigan homes and might not be restored for everyone until Tuesday. Milwaukee utility crews also restored power to more than 48,000 customers in the eastern part of the state after storms hit during the weekend.
