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.
