Residents, Subway, Lose Power In Arverne

A power outage in Arverne last Thursday left up to 1,300 people without power, including a section of Rockaway Freeway elevated subway power, according to Long Island Power Authority officials.

Residents from Beach 54 Street to Beach 67 Street lost power at 12:12 p.m. due to a phase line failure, LIPA officials said. There were reports of several people trapped in elevators around Beach 54 Street, but no serious injuries or incidents occurred as a result.
