POWER OUTAGE EAST AUSTIN

We lost power to the building at 2:57 pm on Wednesday, February 27. According to the Austin American Statesman, a man trying to steal copper from an Austin Energy substation near Airport Boulevard and Springdale Road caused the power outage that impacted 7,300 utility customers.

Our back-up battery system kept programs on the air for about 1.5 hours until around 4:30 pm. Staff was on hand to initiate an orderly shut down of the playback system prior to losing the battery supply of electricity. Our contract manager at the City was notified and asked to contact Time Warner Cable and Grande Communication. Time Warner was able to place a notice on channels 10, 11, and 16.

Power came back to the building at 5:45 pm and staff was able to resume full operation of the playback system by around 6:00 pm. There was no interruption of live programs. To the best of our knowledge, due to the orderly shut down and start-up, there are no technical issues with the playback system. We will be monitoring playback closely.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
