The interruption only lasted about 15 minutes before power was restored to all customers.

PUC is advising customers who may still be without power to please call the PUC Emergency number at 759-6555.



  1. Our power was out behind Millies for nearly a good hour. Certainly not the 15 mins the article states. Not complaining about it, just curious where that info came from?

  2. No sooner than they were done removing all of the meat from the shelves and covering the refrigerated displays at the grocery store with plastic, the power came back on, of course.
