Squirrel or old age causes Fortune St. power outage|
2008-09-03 - East Fortune Street, Columbia, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
Whether it was caused by a squirrel or old age is unsure, but the shattered lightning arrestor in the photo above caused a power outage for five homes and the Windstream telephone exchange for approximately an hour and a half on Tuesday, September 2, 2008. The telephone company was able to switch seamlessly to a diesel generator. A lineman for Kentucky Utilities fixed the situation from the ground using a 30 ft extension pole and power was restored. The shattered device was probably installed in the 1960s, he said. A Today's Picture Album photo, Wednesday, September 3, 2008
