Power outage strikes much of Washington, D.C., including the White House

Post  Admin on Tue Apr 07, 2015 3:19 pm

A power outage reportedly struck much of Washington, D.C., Tuesday morning.

The U.S. State Department, White House, Capitol and Justice Department were among the buildings that lost power.

A White House spokesperson said that backup generators kicked in initially after the outage, according to a tweet from Mark Knoller, a CBS News correspondent.

The Department of Energy, which is responsible for the nation’s power, was also affected by the outage.

Other areas throughout the D.C. metro area, including the University of Maryland in College Park, went dark.

“There is a campus-wide power outage. Crews are working on addressing the problem. Thank you for your patience,” university President Wallace D. Loh tweeted.

Shortly after, Loh explained that there was a problem with the electric feed to the campus and that Pepco, the main electricity service provider for D.C., was working on the problem.

A congressional aide said a backup generator was helping the U.S. Capitol complex to continue operations, according to Reuters.
