Critical Infrastructure Disruption in USA on April 12 2018 10:09 AM (UTC).
The Knoxville Utilities Board is working to restore power to nearly 7,500 people in West Knoxville this morning after one of its substations went down. According to KUB, its West Hills substation had its incoming power feed cut off -- resulting in the massive outage. KUB said nearly 31,000 lost power initially around 4:00 a.m., but it was able to reroute power for most people to reduce the number of outages until crews could restore the substation's main feed. KUB said it estimates to have power restored by 7:30 a.m. based on similar events.
