[Update Below] Hurricane Sandy wasn't done with New York City just yet. At some point after 9:15 p.m. on Tuesday night "problems on high voltage systems supplying power to southern Brooklyn and central portions of Staten Island" required Con Ed to cut the power on approximately 160,000 customers, the company says. Neighborhoods affected include Gerritsen Beach, Marine Park, Midwood, East Flatbush and Flatbush in Brooklyn, and Tottenville, Annadale, Eltingville, Great Kills, Dongan Hills, and Westerleigh on Staten Island.

And that's not all! The power company says it also has "reduced voltage by eight percent" to customers in Ocean Parkway, Flatbush, Bay Ridge, Windsor Terrace, Kensington, Borough Park, Dyker Heights and Bensonhurst.

According to Con Ed the additional blackout was "triggered" by Hurricane Sandy and that they have crews working to repair the problem right now. But in the meantime: "Con Edison has asked customers in the affected area to turn off all electrical appliances to avoid potential damage to the appliances when power is restored. Con Edison regrets the inconvenience to customers."

Update 11:57 a.m. Reports are coming in on Twitter and our tips line that the power is back on for some—but not all—of the folks who lost it in this outage. Appears the problem started with a transformer overload on the Sheepshead Bay network. ConEd shut down the whole line to prevent further cascade before they began to fix it.
