City of Presidio Hit With Power Outage

The City of Presidio is currently without power.

City Administrator Marco Baeza says, according to AEP, the outage was caused by a triggered breaker in the Marfa area. 

All power lines are being patrolled or checked. Once that is complete, AEP will try resetting the breaker. 

The energy company is also performing remote diagnostics to figure out why the battery did not kick in once the breaker was triggered.

AEP has made arrangements with Mexico to bridge power into Presidio, if they are not able to reset the breaker.
