Does anyone know why the electric has been off (Volcancito Road area) for about 12 hours now??

Thanks,

El Santuario area went out at 8:40PM last night, and had fits and starts until about 2:00AM this morning. We are back on the grid now. It was horrible during that outage. I unplugged as much as I could.

Just after the outage began, I tried calling the electric utility, but could not get in. The phones were busy, busy, busy. That told me that it was a wide area outage rather than just our neighborhood.

We also felt a tremor while without electricity, but I did not look at the clock. It lasted about 10 to 15 seconds, and felt kinda weak, like a 2.0 or less.

Power on finally in Volcancito.

Part of Naturgy's (gasNatural fenosa) new global strategy to show sympathy for the people of the Carolinas (but without actually being there).

The outage was really widespread last night and included David according to at least one report.  Everybody seemed to get restored around 2 this morning, except for Volcancito.  It's frustrating, but, hey, it lowers the monthly electric bill.
