Power interruption hits Tucumcari customers

A brief power interruption struck 1,847 Xcel Energy electricity customers in Tucumcari shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday.  The interruption caused computers to stop and restart and set off a fire alarm in the auditorium at Tucumcari High School, Principal Nicole Bright-Lesly said.

Xcel Energy spokesperson Wes Reeves said the outage occurred when a circuit breaker activated, interrupting power flow, but switched on again within seconds.

Reeves said circuit breaker activation usually indicates a fault along a circuit and, he said, Xcel crews are out looking for where the fault may have occurred.
