Midtown Power Outage? (Updated)
You don't want to see red triangles on the Centerpoint outage-tracker map
We're getting reports that the lights are out in at least part of Midtown, and that includes traffic lights that could affect drivers heading to the Southwest Freeway.
Centerpoint's outage-tracker map does show some customers without power in the area.
We have a call in to them; we'll let you know if we hear back. But you might run into some hassles if you're in that area.
Update: Centerpoint's Alicia Dixon tells Hair Balls:
We did experience an outage earlier this afternoon due to a problem with an underground power line. It originally impacted power to about 1,100 customers in the area; we isolated the problem and restored power to all but 2 customers around 5:30. Those two customers are now also back on. We will investigate to find out exactly what caused the outage.
