So, power just went down here on the west end. Looks like it is more than just my feed since houses above me on the hill are out too. Didn't hear a transformer blow, or a car hit a pole... not a breath of air to speak of tonight, so not the wind. No sirens. Anyone have a clue? :S

I call WAPA every time there is an outage as sometimes it affects a only small area and they are not aware.

Went on roof... west end all dark. Friend says Dorsch beach is out. There is a glow to the east like maybe Whim area has power.

Thanks for the update... I went off to read and forgot to care. lol
That is only the feeder for the airport, rum factories, all of Frederiksted. lol Come to think of it, have not heard any planes come in all night. Usually quite a few on a Saturday night. Maybe the airports generator did not kick in.

Must be nice, Jamison!
Power went out here in STT this morning as well. Just for about an hour or so starting around 5AM.
Luckliy, it wasn't out long. Don't know how large an area was affected.
