Brief power outage in north Shoreline last Thursday, June 23

Sunday, June 26, 2011

If you were not home on Thursday morning, June 23, you missed watching the power going off for a couple of minutes, then struggle back on. You may have wondered, as I did, why the clock setting was gone on the microwave and a few other small electrical devices.

According to the Aurora Corridor project communication team,

"the unplanned outage was caused by a blown transformer at the southeast corner of N 192nd Street and Aurora and was not related to construction activities. One of the major benefits of the Aurora Corridor Project is that all overhead power lines on Aurora are being converted to underground power. Aside from the aesthetic improvements of removing the overhead power poles and wires, underground systems are less susceptible to damage and will have back-up systems to minimize or eliminate widespread outages, such as the one that happened [on Thursday]."
