Lightning Arrestor Blamed For Power Outage In Memphis

For the second time in less than a week residents of Memphis experienced a power outage. Customers in part of the city were without power for approximately 90 minutes on Friday, August 16.

According to Superintendent Mike Ahland the problem occurred in the 7,200 volt line that services Memphis. Ahland stated a lightning arrestor on the line "blew apart" because of the weather. That started a chain reaction that blew a fuse.

"It took us a little while to locate the problem area, but once the issue was diagnosed we got the power back on as quickly as possible," he said.

The electric system reported no problems during the lightning storm and heavy rains during the morning hours of August 19.
