ConEd Says No Upper East Side Power Outage, Despite Reports

Con Edison said there appears to be no power outage on the Upper East Side, despite reports on social media. 

"No outages reported, but we had a voltage disturbance from a transmission line that went out. System okay," ConEd spokesman Mike Clendenin said. 

Clendenin said people may have noticed a dip Friday afternoon. 

The utility will continue to check for outages, but "so far nothing yet," Clendenin said. 

There were a number of reports on social media of people stuck on elevators because of the possible outage.
