    Power cut hits NYC for almost four hours

    Saturday's blackout has happened on the same date as the great blackout of 1977

    Less than a month after a similar episode although at a larger scale happened in almost the entire southern cone, a power cut hit New York for about four hours Saturday, affecting some 72,000 customers, in the city's western area and landmarks such as Times Square, causing havoc and unrest when metro lines and theatres came to a standstill.
