Power Outage

   Just before 7:00p on Monday-6-July some sections of Bogota suffered a power outage. The main area was in the Western part of the Borough west of the CSX Railroad tracks, and South of W.Ft.Lee Rd.  There were also scattered through out the Borough. With a strong, and fast moving thunderstorms in the area Trees falling on power lines would have cause most of the outages. Mid-afternoon a small blip in service was experience as the storm continued. As the weather clear power would be disrupted again for a longer period of time.  As crews removed fall branch on the power cable, and for safety  concerns those lines would be turned off. After the debris was clear then crews needed to to exam transformers and fuse for damage. When the final fuse was replaced power was restore just before 9:00p. Crews remain to restore those few who still had power issues.
