10,000 New Yorkers lose power at height of Sunday heat

Out of the frying pan, into the fire.Thousands of Big Apple residents lost power just as temperatures reached their zenith Sunday afternoon, according to energy providers.

Some 10,000 Con Edison customers were sweating it out without power as of 6 p.m. Sunday, an outage map provided by the power company showed.

The number was a fraction of that just an hour before, but swathes of Brooklyn began losing electricity just after 5 p.m. — when the heat index reached a blistering 102, according to the National Weather Service, and The Post measured 113 degrees in Times Square.
