Power outage cause unknown

A power outage affected Caribbean Utilities Company customers across Grand Cayman Tuesday evening.

CUC officials said there was a loss of generation in the company’s North Sound Road power plant at 7:11 p.m., which affected electricity service to areas of East End, Bodden Town, George Town and West Bay.

While service was restored to most of the affected areas by 7:35 p.m., some customers were without power for almost two hours. By 8:41 p.m., service to all customers had been restored.

CUC communications officer Neil Murray said the company is still investigating what caused the loss of generation.
