EL PASO - An official with El Paso Electric said there's no telling when the rolling blackouts throughout the city, will end.

City Manager Joyce Wilson said blackouts are being experienced in 30- to 45-minute intervals.

Other officials are urging residents to conserve energy.

Should there be a major blackout, Wilson said the city would have to, "mobilize sheltering capabilities."

Wilson said a warming center will be set up downtown as of 1 p.m. Wednesday.
