Guam - Island residents were without power for several hours on Sunday. According to Guam Power Authority Spokesperson Art Perez, a downed transmission line in Sinajana caused baseload generators to trip offline, forcing villages to be without power. The outages were reported at around 3pm and were fully restored by 6.
Perez says GPA is currently looking into the cause of the outage, telling KUAM News, "We had line crews dispatched to at least Sinajana to at least take care of the downed line. We had dispatchers and generation crews at their stations manning their generators and coordinating recovery from Cabras Island, and that was all in an effort to restore service as safely as possible and as quickly as possible."
GPA lost about 80 megawatts of power, but Perez says the agency had enough back up generation to compensate for the loss.
