687 residents lose power because of transformer failure

A transformer failure left 687 Victoria residents without power for almost an hour Friday evening.

Homes in the area of Hidden Meadow and Country Club were out of power from 5:40-6:23 p.m., said AEP spokesman Eglin Janssen.

Once AEP workers isolated the faulty transformer, all but 10 customers had power restored.

The others received power about 7:30 p.m. when the transformer was replaced, he said.
