IRON COUNTY, Utah – Nearly 1,00 people were still without power early Monday morning after a loss of transmission at the Parowan Valley substation two days ago.
The failure happened at approximately 2 a.m. Saturday.
Rocky Mountain Power called it a “catastrophic” failure, which initially knocked out power for approximately 2,100 customers in Parowan, Brian Head, Paragonah and Parowan Valley.
A mobile substation from Wyoming was brought in to help alleviate the problem.
Rocky Mountain Power officials said it’s always important to be prepared in case something like this happens. People should have 72 hours worth of food, water, medicine, and backup power if a person uses any type of electrical medical equipment.
Rocky Mountain Power had power fully restored by 5:30 a.m. Monday.
