2nd power outage leaves much of Huntsville in dark

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Another power outage hit the city of Huntsville about 6 p.m. Thursday, but utility crews said they think they've isolated the problem.

The outage affected about 20,000 people in the same areas as the first outage Thursday morning -- from Monte Sano west to the Research Park area, south to Airport Road and Jones Valley.

The outage centered around the substation on Monroe Street near the main library.

Workers think they've narrowed the problem down to a bad communication cable that caused the substation to go offline. Huntsville Utilities crews resolved the issue in about 40 minutes.
