Power is back up for some 600 customers in Weslaco on Tuesday.
The outage started around 5pm on Tuesday stated by Weslaco Emergency Management Coordinator George Garret. Knap Medical Center ran on emergency generators and several traffic lights were out including the intersection of Airport and Business 83. AEP reports that a total of 618 customers were without power for about an hour and a half and the outage was caused by a breaker that opened up when to much power flowed to the breaker.
