East Hall reopens after power outage

East Hall will be open for classes and normal activities today after being closed for much of Wednesday due to a power outage.

Diane Brown, public information officer for the Department of Public Safety, said there was an electrical situation that caused many Central and South campus buildings to experience a power bump around 10:05 a.m. Wednesday. Several buildings on Central Campus lost power.

Although power was restored to most buildings by noon, a substation in East Hall required repairs, Brown said. Those repairs lasted into the evening.
