JUNEAU, Alaska — There's a citywide blackout in Juneau.
Alaska Electric Light & Power Co. says about 15,000 homes and businesses lost power about 1:40 p.m. Monday.
Company spokesman Scott Willis says a transmission line was tripped up near the generation plant, about 45 miles outside the city. No further details
were immediately available.
He says power is slowly being restored. The utility is switching to diesel power instead of relying on hydropower.
Maybe its Islam taking over Alaska!
