Wayward squirrel knocks out power to 1,900

SoVaNow.com / November 05, 2012
A squirrel damaged one of Dominion Power’s substations on Saturday morning, knocking out power to about 1,900 customers in the Halifax-South Boston area.

A Dominion spokesman said yesterday that the damage occurred at 10:20 a.m. Saturday, but by switching relays onto different circuits, power was restored to all 1,900 customers within a two and one-half hour period.

Some customers were back on earlier, he said, just depending on how quickly the circuits could be switched but “by 12:44 everyone had their power restored, “ he said.

It was the second weekend in a row that power outages had been suffered in the South Boston area. Last week an accident on Seymour Drive interrupted power for several hours on Sunday when a driver hit a pole, breaking it into three pieces.
