Falls city experiences citywide power outage
09/19/2018

(KLZA)--The city of Falls City was without power for nearly 3 hours Tuesday morning.

The outage was reported around 6:15.

According to a statement on the Falls City Utilties Facebook page, the city is generating the city's power due to an OPPD substation outage.  The city was running one generator during the evening and early morning hours as the load was low.  However, as the morning started the load began to increase quickly and another generator was needed.

When the additional generator was being brought on-line both generators tripped off-line, putting the city without power.

The post says the plant then needed to be brought back from a " black start” condition, which Falls City Utilities says must be done very systematically and is a time consuming process.

Power was restored about 9:00 Tuesday morning.
