Power Outages Keep Areas of Lubbock in Dark Monday Afternoon
Power is returning for many in the City of Lubbock, after a power surge that knocked out electricity for a number of people Monday afternoon.
According to the City, Lubbock Power and Light found another bad arrestor, which caused Saturday morning’s blackout, and was in the process of shifting electrical loads when a power surge occurred.
LP&L says that the issues should be fixed by 6 p.m. Monday.
Crews are still working on the issue, but power is back on for most of the City. LP&L is asking citizens to conserve power Monday to help ensure that no more issues arise.
Water systems have not been affected by Monday’s outages, so no boil water notice is necessary at this time.
Traffic lights at some intersections were off due to the power issues. Motorists are always urged to treat intersections where traffic lights are out or flashing red as four-way stops.
Evening classes at Texas Tech have been cancelled, and normal schedules will resume Tuesday.
