Blown Transformer Sends High School Students Home Early
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Just one day into the new school year, and students at Ray High School were let out early as a blown transformer near the school's baseball field caused a power outage.
It happened around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, and sent 3,100 American Electric Power customers into darkness. Ray High School students were sent home.
Within minutes, students were out on the sidewalks, and traffic increased as parents rushed to pick up their kids. The early release was decided when AEP informed the district that repairs could take a few hours.
