Entergy said the device performed without problem during January’s Sugar Bowl and other earlier events. They said the device has been removed and replacement equipment will be installed.
The effort to restore power to those impacted by megastorm Sandy will apparently take longer than initially hoped.
“A river of power outage refugees pouring over the Brooklyn Bridge,” WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb reported on August 14, 2003.
Approximately 10,000-15,000 people were impacted by the outage. A power feeder cable burned out, causing the disruption.
The power outage impacted 20,000 customers – including three terminals at Newark Liberty – around 2:30 p.m. and was restored about 90 minutes later.
