Power has been restored in Brooklyn after an outage Saturday that left about 7,500 Con Ed customers in the dark.

Those affected were customers in the Dyker Heights section.

Con Ed says the outage was caused by problems with some overhead power lines serving that part of Brooklyn.

The power went out at about 2:15 p.m., and was restored approximately an hour later.

The area of the outage ran from 57th to 86th Streets, and 7th to 13th Avenues.
