A power outage affected about 2,000 customers in Douglas and West Juneau on Tuesday morning.
Alaska Electric Light and Power says it happened about 8:04 a.m.
Electricity for most of the area was restored in about fifty minutes.
A portion of Douglas near Fifth Street and Treadwell that included about twenty customers was without power until just before 10:30 a.m. Tuesday as line crews worked on replacing a conductor.
The utility’s Deb Ferreira says one of the older conductors, possibly stressed by winds, gave away and touched another line. That opened the feeder for Douglas and West Juneau.
