Power outage
At 12:38 a.m. Sunday, power was interrupted to Circuit 17 affecting the downtown area along Deacon Street and Central Street eastward to Smith’s Food and Drug. The underground line there was patrolled that night and re-energized at 1:22 a.m. restoring power to the area.  The apparent cause of the outage was uncovered Monday when the remains of a large rodent were discovered inside the switchgear equipment box located at Deacon and 17th Street during the follow-up investigation.
