Detroit Power Outage Blackens Several Government Buildings: Report

By    |   Tuesday, 02 Dec 2014 02:39 PM

A Detroit power outage blackened several government buildings and affected some traffic lights throughout the city Tuesday, The Associated Press reported.

Detroit Public Schools says it's dismissing students at mid-day because of the outage, which happened around 10:30 a.m.

Detroit's public lighting department, which serves areas affected by the outage, says "a major cable failure" caused the city's aging grid to lose power.

Wayne State University says it also is closing for the day, while service has suspended by the Detroit People Mover, an elevated rail line looping downtown.

Other affected facilities include Joe Louis Arena, home of the Detroit Red Wings, and fire stations.

Power was being gradually restored to some buildings and traffic signals by early afternoon.

Detroit-based DTE Energy Co. say it's assisting the city.
