Transmission line problem causes McDowell County outage

PANTHER — A transmission line problem in the Panther Circuit, caused a power outage on Sunday afternoon for 1,078 Appalachian Power customers in western McDowell County, according to APCO spokesman Phil Moye.

The power went out at about 1:30 p.m., and was restored by 4:30 p.m., according to Moye. “I don’t know what the nature of the transmission line problem was, but I’m glad it’s back on now,” Moye said.
