All the lights are out at Ralph's on Carrillo. Does anyone know if it's a larger outage or just the store?

A faulty underground electrical vault in Santa Barbara's downtown business zone has caused problems for over 24 hours. (05/16/14)

My friend works at GameStop and said electricity went out there, as he hears sirens.

It's weird, lights are off in random stores on State, traffic lights are off below Carrillo on State, as well as Anacapa. What's going on?

Sometimes the heat triggers breakers.

It's still really hot downtown.

Power was out just off State and Haley starting at 5:30 PM. Checked over on State - power off Ortega to freeway - kind of a crazy traffic situation with Farmer's Market and all the lights being out. Went down to the beach - all power on below freeway. Just came back on at 8:30.

God is making His displeasure known regarding the stupid plastic bag ban.

Underground explosion; Edison unsure of cause. Doesn't make for a good case that underground utilities are any safer than above ground. Speculation on the Lompoc fire/power lines indicated that many feel they are safer, but are they really?

Power was out on the entire eastern side of State Street (clock at Haley & State stuck at 5:45 until power came on) but strangely, power on west side of State street only out in Paseo Nuevo and a bit south of there. Paseo Nuevo power out, except for right next to Chapala. Power out at Starbucks at De la Vina and Carrillo & at Ralphs. I wonder if the underground vault fire was was from some of the illegal refrigerator connections in some of the storage vaults under Paseo Nuevo? The various restaurants aren't supposed to plug into the storage units their cold storage units for extra food. ANyhow, hope we get a good report on it eventually.

Why is Edison so slow to respond to electrical problems here?

@703: It doesn't infer that underground utilities are unsafe, but maybe that they are not more reliable.

What doe all this this mean? Who or what is "Marshall's Crew" and what does "trying to go Amish" imply ?

Some days I feel I'm in a foreign country.

759: Marshall's Crew just refers to the employees at Marshall's. I would guess "trying to go Amish" implies trying to work without electricity.

 

 COMMENT 518770 agree helpful negative off topic

@759 Marshall crew = salespeople who work at Marshall's department store on State St.

Going Amish = Google "Amish"

Power not expected to be back on until this evening. Marshalls and Bank of America still closed.
