Roulette Area Hit With Low Voltage After Storm

A thunderstorm that hit the Roulette area shortly after 6:00 pm last night caused power to go off briefy, but, when the power came back on, it contained only 65 volts instead of the normal 130 volts.

While incandescent bulbs glowed safely in a dimmed condition, flourescent lights didn't, and motors and electronic equipment had to be disconnected as they can be damaged by trying to run in this low voltage condition.

Allegheny Power representatives promised restoration of full power by 11:00 pm, but at 11:00pm the estimate was changed to 8:45 am.

Full power was restored sometime during the night.

Posting of some pictures and stories was delayed on Solomon's words Saturday night, and hopefully will get done after church this afternoon. We have some pictures of the Port Allegany community yard sales and a trip to Tubb's greenhouse on Lillibridge to get plants and flowers.
