Power out­ages un­re­lated

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCALBRIEFING - Com­piled from staff re­ports

Two sep­a­rate power out­ages left some res­i­dents with­out elec­tric­ity for a few hours early Tues­day.

About 500 cus­tomers on the south side of Old Town Ge­orge­town, lo­cated east of In­ter­state 35, lost elec­tric­ity at 2:30 a.m. and got power back at 5 a.m., city spokesman Keith Hutchinson said. At 6:45 a.m., 1,000 cus­tomers lost power in the same area, he said. Power was re­stored about 9:15 a.m., he said.

The first power out­age re­sulted from a blown fuse caused by wildlife, while the sec­ond was caused by a tree limb fall­ing on power lines, ac­cord­ing to the Ge­orge­town Util­ity Depart­ment.
