Power outage hits Elon
Several buildings on Elon’s campus lost power at approximately 2:30 p.m as a result of power outages in Alamance County.
Duke Energy told ELN there were two power outages in Alamance County that affected 2200 customers.
Most buildings at Elon affected by the outages were west of North O’ Kelly Ave., the Francis Center, the Danieley Center and South Campus, according to an email from Dean of Student Life Smith Jackson.
Dr. Jackson said there isn’t a timetable for the restoration of power. The cause of the power outage might have been from an “unconfirmed report of a vehicle accident in Gibsonville,” he added.
According to Alamance Communications, the power outages were due to weather related causes.
Several buildings affected by the outages regained power within the hour.
