SACRAMENTA, Calif. (AP) – A power outage in the California capital left much of downtown in the dark on Thursday and delayed the start of the state legislature.
The Sacramento County Public Utilities reported that 650 customers were without electricity this morning, and that number probably represented thousands of people as several high-rise office buildings and the State Capitol were affected.
On its website, the utility said the crews are working to replace the transformer. According to their estimates, the power supply will be restored by 11 am
The Sacramento Police Department said there were several traffic lights in the city center, urging drivers to be careful.
The state legislature was scheduled to meet at 9 p.m. The shutdown postponed the start of the state assembly until 9:30 p.m. The state senate planned to meet in the Legislative Committee room in another building.
