Update: Huntsville Utilities says TVA was doing work at a substation when the outage occurred. 

If you don’t have power, report the outage to 256-53LIGHT (256-535-4448).

Huntsville Utilities provided this statement:

At 10:37am this morning, Huntsville Utilities experienced multiple substation breaker opens following TVA maintenance work at the Central Substation.

While most power was restored in less than five minutes, the Huntsville Primary substation did not immediately reset which caused a service interruption to approximately 30,000 customers.

Huntsville Utilities Electric Operations Crews responded to the Huntsville Primary substation and restored power to all customers at 11:00am.

Anyone still experiencing a service-related issue should call 256-53-LIGHT (256-535-4448).
