An early-morning electrical outage left canneries along the Kodiak waterfront without power, according to Kodiak Electric Association President Darron Scott. An electrical fault caused a circuit breaker to trip at the Hartman Substation.
While crews were troubleshooting that outage, an additional component failed, resulting in an outage on Center and Mission streets. The 8:55 a.m. power surge caused a momentary brownout in other parts of town. Some businesses in the Mall area had to close due to the outage.
As of noon, KEA crews were still trying to isolate where the latest outage originated. We’ll keep you updated on their progress.
