Aps Works To Restore Power On Country Club Rd.

APS workers transfer power lines from the old pole to a new pole. Earlier today a delivery truck snagged a low hanging power line and snapped the power pole, causing a power outage.

Early this afternoon a delivery truck snagged a power line in the parking lot at Payson Golf Club. The force was enough to snap a power pole on Vista Road, causing approximately 200 homes to lose power.

APS is currently replacing the old pole on Vista Road with a new pole and once the lines are transferred and a new transformer is attached to the power pole, power in the neighborhood should be restored.

APS estimates full power to be back on by 5:00 p.m.

It may be best to avoid this area until the pole can be replaced and power restored.

The electricity was also out as far as Stone Creek subdivision, near McLane and Longhorn. This poor old 76 year old woman had to climb a ladder three times to get the garage door opened and then closed. (: My phone wouldn't work because it is hooked into the computer. Of for the simple life of 70 years ago.

I was surprised that my house had power as we live right off of Vista. Funny how the power is distributed around here. I just drove by thought, coming home and the road was was open at 5:15 so that's good news.
