QUEENS — Some 1,200 Con Ed customers lost power in the Ozone Park Monday afternoon, officials said.

The cause of the outage, which started at 1:40 p.m., was not immediately known, said Con Ed spokesman Allan Drury, but power was expected to be restored by 9 p.m.

Power had been restored to 200 customers by 4 p.m., said Drury.

City-wide, there were approximately 1,389 customers without power in scattered outages.

Today's high was forecast at 90 degrees by AccuWeather.com. Drury said heat was not a likely cause of the outages and that there were no energy reduction advisories in effect.

"We always encourage customers to use energy efficiently," he said.
