High winds cause Juneau outage, power restored

Power has been restored to all of Juneau, after parts of downtown and Douglas were in the dark for a couple hours last night (Sunday).

Alaska Electric Light and Power reports a pair of feeder lines failed, causing about 4-thousand customers to be without electricity. The outage began just after 6 p.m. All areas were restored by about 8 p.m.

High winds are believed to be responsible for the feeder lines’ failure.
