Original story:Grand Cayman has been experiencing an island-wide power outage since a little before 4:30 a.m. Friday.
According to a statement from Caribbean Utilities Company, the power outage may continue for most of the rest of the morning, or longer.
According to CUC spokesperson Pat Bynoe-Clarke, who spoke to the Cayman Compass early this morning, crews were working on a problem at the CUC engine room No. 5.
CUC was uncertain of the exact problem that led to the outage. Many businesses in George Town appeared not to be open. Traffic lights were out, and police officers were directing the flow of automobiles at intersections.
