    Trains in downtown Brooklyn, including the A, C, and G, are running with delays due to low power.

    With the heat wave putting a strain on the city's power system, the MTA said today that several subway lines were experiencing signal problems due to low voltage -- causing delays and disruptions throughout Brooklyn and part of Manhattan.

    Demand for power amid the heat wave prompted Con Edison to lower voltage in Brooklyn early this morning -- and that move disrupted signals around Bergen Street, the MTA said.

    The A train was running on the local track from 168th Street in MN to Euclid Avenue. The C train was suspended for a time.

    Some Coney Island bound F trains were turned around at 2nd Avenue.  The G train was turned around at the Bedford-Nostrand stop, the MTA said.

    The complications began around 8:20 a.m. and were corrected by 1:15 p.m., the MTA site said.
