An unplanned power outage in the west end of the city this morning left 651 PUC customers without service for about an hour as line crews investigated the cause and worked to restore service.
The outage which occurred at around 11:30 a.m. affected customers in the areas of Second Line West, west of Town Line, Base Line from Airport Road to Walls Road, Sunnyside Beach and Prince Lake.
Power was restored at around 12:30 p.m.
PUC is asking that if any customers are still without power, please call their emergency number at 759-6555.
PUC would like to remind all of our customers:
- Downed wires should always be considered energized or “live”, and extremely dangerous
- Do not approach or drive over a downed power line and do not touch anything the power line may be in contact with
- Parents are encouraged to talk to their children about powerline safety and the dangers that can be associated with power lines
- Take all the necessary safety precautions during a power outage
