Coon Causes Peru Outage

Posted by wlpo on May 21, 2011

A raccoon caused a citywide power outage Saturday morning in Peru.

Power went out around 4:15am and was back on about 20 minutes later.  Peru electric officials say a raccoon apparently walked up to the top of the substation along Water Street and triggered the outage.

The outage involved Peru’s electrical setup and not Ameren’s.
