Power Blowout Responsible for Courthouse Blackout

Posted: Updated:

COMANCHE CO., Okla_ Comanche County has figured out what caused a four-hour-long power outage at the courthouse over the weekend.

Public Service Company of Oklahoma said a part of its underground system that feeds power to the courthouse and jail blew out.  Normally, the courthouse's backup generator kicks in, but it didn't, and the building was forced to run on partial power.

PSO said it has fixed their end of the problem, but Central District Commissioner Johnny Owens said the system is over 20 years old and needs to be updated. He's already started the process.

Wednesday on 7News, find out what the problem areas are and how the county wants to fix them.
