News Report: Power Outage

From Joan Steinke, Tropicana Forum reporter.   April 27, 2012.  6:30 p.m.:


The power in Tropicana went off around 8:30 A.M. on Friday.  Parts of the community were restored about an hour later.  Those are the homes that are on with the fire station.  Almost the rest was on a little later, but The ditch side of Camelia, and from our house to Palm plus some on East Palm and Lantana were out until 12:45 P.M.  It’s amazing how we depend on electricity for our everyday living.   Flipping a light switch is automatic.   Using the microwave.  So much of what we do is so dependent on electricity.  I’m not sure what caused the power outage but will share when I know!
