City experiences power outage A power outage affected customers of Vermillion Light & Power Monday, May 1.
The one hour outage was caused by a bad connection on an old air switch located at Prentis Park. Air switches are intended to reroute the main voltage from one transformer to another.
Power flickered on and off due to the loose connection opening and closing the main line to the system. The faulty piece of equipment was taken out of service in order to eliminate future problems.
