Super Bowl Blackout Solved
Power company officials in New Orleans say they’ve figured out what triggered the blackout during last weekend’s Super Bowl game, which caused stadium lights to fail and the game to be halted for more than a half-hour.
FOX News Radio’s Eben Brown reports:
Remember the blackout during the Super Bowl?
(Super Bowl) “Half the power in New Orleans’ stadium, the Superdome here, is out. And almost a perfect semi-circle of the lights.”
…as heard on CBS during the 34 minute play stoppage. But officials with Entergy, the power company in New Orleans, says a relay, which was installed for the purpose of preventing a power failure, was itself faulty and is to blame for the power loss. The same device functioned well during the Sugar Bowl last month, but they’ve now replaced it.
