Tree cutting causes morning power outage

Residents out the road in Auke Bay and Lena Loop lost power for about 20 minutes this morning. The rest of Juneau may have noticed a brief power glitch.

Debbie Driscoll with Alaska Electric Light and Power says a tree that was being cut down fell on a line.

It took out power to feeders in Auke Bay and Lena Loop. A crew isolated the affected transformer and restored power within 20 minutes.

Driscoll says AEL&P was not responsible for the tree cutting.
