Power Restored to 100 ML&P Customers Affected in Outage Last Night
ANCHORAGE, AK – Sept. 19, 2012 – Power was restored to approximately 100 Municipal Light & Power electric customers by 1 a.m. this morning. The two outages began last night as another severe wind storm passed through Anchorage, causing trees to tangle with power lines.
ML&P had two crews working the outages last night. Tree removal took several hours before power could be safely restored to the neighborhoods south of Providence Medical Center, as well as the area east of MacInnes Street and south of 36th Avenue.
