Transformer incident causes outages; today's Herald delayed

May 31, 2013

A blown transformer at the Big Spring Herald this morning caused more than 1,000 electrical customers to temporarily lose power and will delay publication of today's edition of the newspaper.

Shortly after 8 a.m. today, the transformer located adjacent to the Herald building at 710 Scurry shut down in a series of mini-explosions.

"When that happened, that caused a fault in the mainline breaker," said Jim Clements of Oncor. "That caused about 1,500 customers to lose power."
