Power restored after ‘significant’ outage in Marietta

Service has been restored after a transformer blew out in Marietta early Tuesday, leaving 2,000 customers in the dark, officials said.

Residents reported hearing a series of loud booms followed by a white flash just after 3:50 a.m., according to Channel 2 Action News.

Customers were without service in the area of Marietta Board of Light and Water, which is on North Marietta Parkway and Fairground Street, until 6:45 a.m., authorities said.

That is when Marietta Electric rerouted power away from the damaged Georgia Power substation.

“Crews are still on the scene working to make permanent repairs,” Marietta police said in an alert to residents.
