More than 3,700 customers lost power for half an hour this afternoon in the northwest part of Carmel when a squirrel snuck into a substation.
“There was no damage at the substation. The squirrel just made contact with the equipment, which caused the outage.”
Power was lost at 2:37 p.m. and was restored at 3:09 p.m.
In addition to homes losing power, several stoplights shut down and police officers had to direct traffic.
