Downtown, North End Power Outage Hits 2,000

by

Automatic garage door openers, PCs, TVs—you name it—were all jolted around 8 o'clock this morning when power went out through Downtown Boise and parts of the city's North End.

Boise Weekly was among nearly 2,000 customers that were hit by the outage, which was bordered by Resseguie, Front, Fort and 22nd streets.

Idaho Power is blaming a broken power pole and downed power lines for the problem.
