With historic flooding making its way through all five boroughs over the last two days, many people found themselves without any power.
While a large amount of people saw their power restored, damages caused by Ida prevented Con Edison crews from restoring power for some customers.
Earlier this morning 500 customers in Brooklyn were without power, with over 200 located on the block of Bergen Street between Franklin Avenue and Classon Avenue. Thankfully, Con Edison has reduced that total number in Brooklyn to 150, and this street in Crown Heights has seen its power restored. 
Con Edison told News 12 they're hoping to restore power to at least 95% of customers by tonight.
In the Bronx, around 250 customers still remain without power.
