It is our understanding, after visiting with Tri-State Transmission dispatch that at approximately 12:10pm this afternoon, a main transmission breaker opened causing the Tri-State transmission facilities to trip off-line.
We understand that power was out from La Junta east and included the communities of La Junta, Las Animas, Lamar, Springfield and Southeast Power. The outage lasted approximately a half an hour. There were no Lamar Light and Power facilities involved with the outage as this was a regional outage.
If you have any questions, call the offices of Lamar Light and Power at 719-336-7456.
