My friend Brian of Horizon Small Engine Repair has sold generators today and repaired some. He is located just outside of Edgewood, he has power. Many are concerned about their food spoiling.

KOB TV Reported this morning:

Many residents in the town of Edgewood are still waiting for power to be restored after weather caused at least 14 utility poles to fall Friday afternoon, causing an outage for at least 6,300 residents in the community and surrounding area.

Others areas impacted include portions of Sandia Park, Sandia Knolls and Moriarty.

KOB TV REPORT

Power was expected to be on by noon, but we just checked with FGGAM friends in the Edgewood area and they have no power at this time, 4:33pm Saturday.

For those in the Edgewood area and points to the north and west affected by the power outage, there is good and bad news. The good: The problem areas have been identified and Tri-State has sent in extra crews. The bad news: mud is slowing the repair effort. Most of the affected customers won’t have power before tomorrow.

I stopped to talk to one repair crew on my way back from Santa Fe this afternoon. It appears that a microburst took down approx. 6 poles on East Dinkle near Bassett Road. North of that location, the wind carried an outbuilding into other poles leading to the substation on East Venus.

Several people in Edgewood saw what appeared to be a small funnel/wall cloud moving that direction shortly before the power outage.
