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.
