McAllen Texas Power Outage? : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

I spoke to a friend at 0300CST in McAllen Texas who said the lights have been out in that city since shortly after the rollover. Has anyone determined if this outage is Y2K related?

I do know that yesterday power traffic lights were out on a section of Pecan, but not city-wide and do not know the cause. There is powere now and has been all night according to a check with a few friends.

The only quirk that I noted, was that my Sprint PCS would dial and then re-dial from 00:00 to roughly 00:30 CST. I tried land lines to others with PCS' but to no avail. At 00:40 I recived a call from a friend on it and I was then able to call out too.

Just a follow-up; yesterday, power was out in sections of McAllen, Mission, and Weslaco. Also, a local major radio stations telephones were out and it was blamed on Y2K.
