Power outage in Hagatna, Anigua tonight


The Guam Power Authority has scheduled an emergency power outage in the Hagatna and Anigua areas tonight, Aug. 22, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The areas affected include: W. O’ Brien Dr., Anigua Napa, Anigua Circle K Gas Station, U.S. District Court, KFC, Julale Shopping Center, GCIC Bldg., Agana Treatment Plant, U.S. Post Office, Agana Latte Stone Park and customers in these surrounding locations.

According to GPA, Navy line crews will make repairs on line hardware to improve power quality and reliability. GPA said the outage is necessary because Navy line crews will be performing work on power lines or power line hardware.

Customers using backup generators are asked to ensure that their main breaker is in the “open” position to ensure the safety of the GPA crews working on the lines.

GPA regrets the inconvenience caused to customers in these areas but said the outage is necessary as a safety precaution while the GPA crews are performing this work.
