Heat Wave: Which Borough to Lose Power This Weekend?

It looks like it’s going to be another scorcher. After a power outage for over a week in Queens, and an outage in Staten Island on Thursday affecting 10,000 people, it seems like a safe bet that the power’s going to go this weekend in one borough or another. This morning, NY1's poll showed that 94% of people responding thought another power outage was a sure thing. By this afternoon, the optimists gained a foothold, with 9% crossing their fingers that the power would stay on. If it does go out, Con Ed representatives can expect an earful from the City Council - the first hearing on the recent outages is scheduled on Monday. Meanwhile, Governor Pataki is seeking federal disaster funds for Queens businesses and residents.
