WAPA Investigating Why Power Went Off In Cotton Valley and Solitude This Morning
CHRISTIANSTED – The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority said Sunday that it is well aware of the people in St. Croix who are without electricity.
WAPA said that portions of Estates Cotton Valley and Solitude began experiencing “an electrical service interruption” at 8:20 a.m. today.
But WAPA said it currently does not know the cause of the power outage.
“Line department crews have been dispatched to patrol the feeder, identify the cause of the service interruption and restore electrical service as soon as possible,” WAPA said in a prepared statement.
About 79 customers are affected by the power outage, according to WAPA.
Locally-heavy rains were reported on the East End of St. Croix around the time of the isolated WAPA blackout.
