Power Outage Strikes NE
Lights out everybody. The following went out on the 6A listserv-
Pepco reported power outage affecting traffic signal lights in the North East area, from 18th Street to 41st Street on Benning Rd. NE and parts of Florida Avenue NE (Near Gallaudet University). The cause of the problem is a feeder outage and 2400 customers are without electrical power. DDOT Rope Unit, Traffic Control Officer's and MPD are on site assisting with traffic control.
I also got an email from a resident of 12th & Maryland who reported having no power. Depending on who you believe, the power may be fixed anytime, or it may not be back up until sometime tonight.
DCist covers the story. So does the Post. According to the Post, around 2,300 customers in NE are currently without power. Obviously, traffic lights, and power to business is down as well as power to residences.
