Brief Outage Affects Central Alameda

Approximately 2,500 Alameda Municipal Power customers lost power briefly this morning when, it is believed, Mylar balloons crossed lines.

The momentary outage occurred at 10:16 a.m. and affected customers between Clement Avenue and Otis Drive, from Paru Street to LaFayette Street, including some adjacent areas. System protective equipment operated, and AMP line crews patrolled lines and effected necessary repairs.

The incident remains under investigation.
