Power Transformer Fails in Manassas Park
The transformer "relayed out" at 9:24 a.m affecting customers in Manassas Park and elsewhere, Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative spokeswoman Priscilla Knight said.
Crews quickly responded to a nearby power substation and re-routed electricity.
The power outage lasted about 20 minutes, she said.
NOVEC continues to ask its customers to save electricity by limiting their power consumption, but that request is unrelated to the power outage.
