[quote:Luisport:MV8yMDg5MTg5XzM1MTgxMjI0X0ZEQkYyRTcx] Power Outage in USA on Friday, 21 December, 2012 at 09:27 (09:27 AM) UTC. Description The lights went out in the Annapolis area Thursday night as BG&E lost two main feeder lines, according to a BG&E spokesperson. As a result, some 50,000 customers lost power at around 9 p.m. The areas affected were the city of Annapolis, Westgate and Cedar Park. BG&E has crews investigating the cause of the the incident but as of 10:45 p.m., had not determined what caused the problem. BG&E did not make an estimated time of restoration of power. The feeder lines that failed feed several substations in the Annapolis area, according to the BG&E spokesperson, who said that it is possible that when the power failed, the substations also went offline. Because some equipment in the substations makes what sounds like an explosion when the large fuses blow, residents may have heard the noise when fuses blew, which also causes light as well as noise, the spokesperson said. http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=PW-20121221-37588-USA [/quote]
Wind gusts and precipitation brought down power lines and left thousands without power throughout Illinois in the season's first winter storm.
More than 30,000 people are without power in northern Illinois as of 8 p.m., according to Arlana Johnson, a spokeswoman for Commonwealth Edison.
The western suburbs were the hardest hit, with more than 27,000 people without power, Johnson said.
ComEd prepared for power outages and significant damage to its system, putting out additional crews and equipment and by asking other utilities to be at the ready to assist.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the area until 3 a.m. Friday.
