Faulty line affects power in Columbia

October 15, 1998

A faulty underground electrical line resulted in a power outage affecting more than 900 customers in Columbia yesterday.

Four traffic lights near Town Center were affected, authorities said.

The cause of the outage -- which started about 1: 30 p.m. -- was under investigation, but power had been restored to most of the customers by 2: 15 p.m., said Nancy Caplan, a spokeswoman for Baltimore Gas and Electric Co.

The outage was confined to businesses and homes along Little Patuxent and Governor Warfield parkways, Caplan said.
