Bird's Nest Causes Power Outage


May 25, 2013

A total of 3,256 customers, basically the entire city of Tucumcari, lost power from 7:06 to about 8:30 Saturday morning.

Xcel Energy spokesperson Wes Reeves said the outage occurred because pieces of a bird's nest made contact with circuit protection equipment at the Tucumcari substation on Campbell Avenue.
