Watch the substation blow out that caused Dunlap power outage

DUNLAP, Tennessee (WDEF) – The proof is in the video.

An explosion last night at the Brush Creek substation caused a power outage in the wee hours for the Dunlap area.

Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative posted video on their Facebook page today of what happened.

They say a lightening arrestor “failed.”

The “failure” is an explosion and lots of sparking.

Residents said it happened around 2:30 AM.

Some said they heard the explosion.

TVEC didn’t tell us how many people lost power at the time, but they are down to just 8 homes without power this afternoon.
