0

The Water And Power Authority has scheduled an emergency power outage from 1 to 3 a.m. Thursday that will cut off St. John while repairs are made to the Tutu and East End St. Thomas substations.
According to a release from WAPA, all the C and D feeders will be affected, including those for Tutu Park and Ridge Road as well as St. John.
Heavy winds and surges caused damage to lightening arresters and potheads at the Tutu and East End substations over the weekend, the release said. As a result, a fault developed at the Krum Bay power plant, forcing an emergency power outage on feeder 7 Tuesday morning.
The release said WAPA opted to conduct the repairs in the night hours to minimize inconvenience to customers.
