NEW YORK (CNN) -- A major power outage simultaneously
struck several large cities in the United States and
Canada late Thursday afternoon.

Cities affected include New York; Boston,
Massachusetts; Cleveland, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan;
Toronto, Ontario; and Ottawa, Ontario. The power
outage occurred shortly after 4 p.m.

Much of Midtown Manhattan and Wall Street were shut
down, including all area airports and the Long Island
Railroad. The airports were operating on back-up power
and operations were reported to be normal, officials

The New York City Police Department said they were
trying to determine what happened. A Con Edison
transformer on East 14th Street in Manhattan was
afire, CNN learned.

Thousands of people could be seen leaving buildings
and walking into the streets. New York subways were
reported stopped and people were trapped in the cars.
