Power is back on at College of the Redwoods after the Eureka campus classes were closed this afternoon to fix a power outage. The outage happened Wednesday morning at 7:15AM and knocked out power to the bookstore, dining services, child development center, and the college's two new buildings.
Classes were canceled from 11:30AM till 2:00PM while crews worked to correct the problem. CR personnel determined the cause of the outage to be due to an old power line, installed in the 1960s, burning up.
All classes will resumed after 2:00PM.
