Blackout Damages Traffic Light Circuits Causing Rush Hour Chaos


Guam – Last night’s islandwide power outage damaged circuits in many of the island’s traffic lights causing rush hour chaos at various intersections this morning [Thursday].

Traffic lights were blinking red along portions of Route 4, Route 8 and Route 10 this morning. However most of the lights along Route 1 from Yigo to Hagatna were working.

DPW’s Jesse Garcia says crews have been dispatched to re-boot and or repair signal lights at major intersections that were knocked out by the power outage.
