A Monday morning power outage at Grand Central turned the normally busy and bright train station into a sea of darkness.

Luckily, the outage occurred on a federal holiday, Presidents Day, and was only causing minor disruptions, according to media reports.

The blackout was on the lower level only, and train were currently using the upper level, with no service issues so far due to the holiday schedule, ABC 7 reported.
