Over 1,300 south-central El Pasoans get electricity back after outage on 2nd hottest day of the year

EL PASO, Texas -- Electricity was restored to over 1,300 homes and businesses in south-central El Paso after about a 90-minute outage on the second hottest day of the year so far.

El Paso Electric indicated the outage was reported around 5 p.m. Monday, and power to all customers was restored by about 6:30 p.m.

A spokesman said crews worked to restore power as quickly as possible in the sweltering 100+ degree heat, which he said was their top priority.

With service restored, the utility said it was turning its focus to investigating the cause for the outage.

El Paso reached 105 for a high temperature late Monday afternoon, making it the second hottest day in 2020. The hottest thus far was 107 on June 5.
