Power Mostly Restored In Downtown; Channel 9 Without Power For Nearly 5 hours

What a day it was for us at NewsChannel 9, Monday.  A power outage knocked us off the air for more than 4 hours.

It was just after 4:00 PM, that the power was knocked out in Downtown, El Paso.

We've just learned from El Paso electric a burned out cable caused the outage..

About four blocks around Mesa and Yandell were left completely without power and we stayed that way until around 8:20 PM, Monday night.

As a result we were unable to broadcast our 5:00 PM or 6:00 PM newscasts.

About 450 customers were affected.

But as of 11:00 PM, Monday, not all power had been restored.

There are still traffic lights out Downtown and some of the bank buildings in Downtown are without power.
