Century Left Without Power For Hours Tuesday

August 13, 2019

Gulf Power says an equipment problem led to an outage that left the entire town of Century and a small surrounding area without power for hours Tuesday, one of the hottest days of the year.

Gulf Power spokesperson Kimberly Blair said the outage was due to an equipment failure at a power substation in Century.  That left about 900 Gulf Power customers without power for over three hours.

    This outage probably greatly hindered the gas meter replacement project.
