Anyone any idea what's behind the numerous outages we've had in the past 12 hours? The longest was 2+ hours during the night, the most recent 8 minutes half an hour ago. So far around 8 or 9 outages, I think.

That's strange. The power went off here for between 2 and 8 minutes several times in the early hours, never for any longer, then for just over 2 hours later on. Doesn't suggest a single cause cutting off the power, if it was different for you guys.

we are all on different feeders and lines so each section of town can experience differences in supply.

I think the early morning outage was countrywide.

The local on-island BEL station has enough emergency generating power to cover the town center...but not enough for the rest of San Pedro...so some may see power return promptly while the unfortunate rest of us suffer without.

hey Jesse - you live on a gorgeous palm studded island in the caribbean -not too unfortunate!

But yes, I love having an office in the town core since we are on the BEL priority list for service.

Went out this morning too just before 7am luckily it was a quickie.

I remember the days when we lived in town we were always the first to regain power if it was a longer outage.
