MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Con Ed crews worked through the night in Mount Vernon in an effort to restore power to the Metro-North substation, a problem that has stopped electric trains from running on the New Haven Line through lower Weschester County.

Crews were still in the process Wednesday night of assessing the damage to the feeder line, according to a video statement released by Con Edison.

The power outage has caused massive interruptions in train service on the New Haven Line, creating headaches for commuters. Metro-North set up limited service using diesel-fueled trains but won't be able to offer full service until electricity is restored.

Crews will be working 24 hours a day until power is restored, Con Ed said.

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy has said the repair work could take two to three weeks.
