Power out in downtown…

Good evening, Netizens…

A short time ago I received an automated e-mail announcement that a client located in downtown Spokane had lost regular electrical service and was going on battery backup. Now I know why. Upon further investigation I discovered that an underground power vault located near Monroe and Sprague has exploded, cutting off power to most of downtown Spokane. Street lights, stop lights, even the Davenport and the Spokesman-Review building. 

The power outage reportedly encompasses a six to eight block radius.
