STRANGE MULTICOLOR FLASHES shut ELECTRICAL POWER in Sanibel and Captiva
LCEC spokesperson Karen Ryan says 600 customers on Captiva now have power. Crews are still working to restore service to the remaining 1900. Engineers expect the remaining repairs to go quicker than previous ones. All customers should have power within the next couple of hours.
LCEC officials tell Fox 4 all power was restored to the 2,500 customers experiencing an outage on Sanibel Island around 1 a.m. Approximately 2,500 customers on Captiva Island remain without power. Crews are still on scene, and will not leave until all customers have power.
At this time, the cause of the damage is not known. It appears that the event was triggered by a device failure in the substation. It could have been caused by a tree branch that fell on a power line.
Fox 4 is working to find out if the source of the lights reported in sky are related. Watch tonight at 10pm for a full report.
