Power Outage In Dallas Is Over

Wayne Howard
Staff Writer

Just before 11 PM on Friday night (May 24th) a transformer failure occurred at a town of Dallas electrical substation located on S. Rhyne Street in Dallas. This equipment failure resulted in a power outage that affected all 3,600 customers who live in the town of Dallas.

Dallas electric crews replaced the transformer and began restoring power in phases about 1 PM Saturday. Power was fully restored by 2:30 PM Saturday (May 25th).

During this outage traffic lights at all intersections in Dallas were inoperable and motorists were reminded to treat any such intersection as a four way stop, coming to a full stop and proceeding through the intersection only when it was safe to do so.

With the temperature at 92 degrees and no air conditioning, many were sweltering in the heat, so the town of Dallas assisted by the American Red Cross opened a cooling station at 1:00 PM at the Dallas Fire Department at 209 W. Main St. for citizens needing relief from the heat.

On Thursday morning, power was briefly knocked out in an area along Frankklin Blvd. in east Gastonia, Cox Road, NC 7 (Long Ave.) at Ranlo and surrounding areas when a Duke Energy transformer failure caused a power outage that affected more than 6,000 Duke Energy customers.
