NEW YORK (WABC) --

More than 20,000 homes and business are without power in the region, and Consolidated Edison is reducing power to several Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods and asking residents to conserve electricity on one of the summer's hottest days while the utility repairs cables.

As of Monday afternoon at 3:30 p.m., about 16,000 homes and business are without power on Staten Island, with about 11,800 in the Fox Hills area and 4,106 in the Fresh Kills area. Another 5,000 homes and businesses are without power on Long Island, mostly in Nassau County. There's no word yet when the power will be back on.

Con Edison is deploying generators to Staten Island.

the power grids here are aging just like our bridges and roads. They operate in the summer at near capacity, and sometimes that capacity is reached and exceeded. Every year we have a lot of heat the rolling brownouts occur. I remember the electricity going off when I was younger, it only happened in storms. But hey the elite could not horde the wealth and live in luxury if they kept up the infrastructure.
