SACRAMENTA, Calif. (AP) – A power outage in the California capital has left much of downtown in the dark and delayed the start of the state legislature.
The Sacramento Municipal Housing District reported 650 customers were without power on Thursday. This figure probably represents thousands of people as several high-rise office buildings and the Capitol have been affected.
The website of the utility service reports that the crews are working to replace the transformer. They expected the power supply to be restored by 11 a.m. The state legislature was scheduled to meet at 9 p.m.
The suspension delayed the meeting for half an hour. The state senate planned to meet in the legislature room in the next building.
