St. Croix Residents Lose Power Early Thanksgiving


Nov. 24, 2005 – One thing several hundred St. Croix residents were not giving thanks for as they tried to finish up some cooking Thanksgiving morning was a consistent power supply.
Cassandra Dunn, spokesperson for Water and Power Authority, said that weather – wind, lightning and rain – were responsible for the power outages. She said problems were experienced with Feeder No. 1 early in the morning and then Feeder No. 10 later. Most customers probably did not notice the outages because they occurred in the 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. period. However, there were still about 150 customers in the northwest part of the island without power at noon.
Dunn also said the weather had caused a few scattered local outages too. She added, "The crews are out there working in the rain. They are doing a pretty good job of getting everyone back on line."
