This morning, the WBKB facility experienced a power outage. The cause has been traced back to a short in a power cable. It could have been a dangerous situation; the damaged cable provides 13 thousand volts of energy to our building. Alpena Power Company sent all of it's crews to respond to the problem. The cause of the incident has been determined to be to an older cable line that was disturbed by the freeze-thaw in the ground. After about four hours, Alpena Power was able to come up with a temporary solution to restore power.
