Martha's Vineyard power outage : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

For what it's worth:

Martha's Vineyard loses power

By Associated Press, 01/06/00

A large section of Martha's Vineyard is without power today because of an equipment problem on the mainland.

Commonwealth Electric spokesman Mike Durand said the outage is affecting about 3,500 customers in Edgartown, Tisbury and West Tisbury.

Durand said the equipment failure occurred at 9:45 this morning in Falmouth knocking out power that is fed to Martha's Vineyard through an undersea cable.

The utility is hoping to get a diesel generator up and running on the island while repairs are made on the mainland.
