POWER OUTAGE: 3/31 (BIG BUMMER!!)

Santa Clara: Squirrel causes power outage affecting over 5,000 customers

Electricity to more than 5,000 customers got a little squirrelly Tuesday night, according to Silicon Valley Power.

A power outage, which has affected 5,420 customers, was reported shortly before 6:30 p.m., according to the utility. The outage was caused by a squirrel that had wiggled its way into a transformer at a substation, the utility added.

How the squirrel got into the transformer remains unclear, but Silicon Valley Power said customers should expect to be without power for the next few hours.
