CHINCOTEAGUE, Va.- Chincoteague Island experienced an island wide outage Monday at approximately 9:30 a.m. due to a loss in the transmission circuit, according to the island's power provider A & N Cooperative.

The co-op said the weather-related outage lasted approximately 40 minutes and repairs were made temporarily until the proper equipment arrives later in Monday afternoon. At this point, all members should have power restored. If you do not, report the outage to our office immediately at (757) 787-9750.

A & N said there is a possibility the island may endure another outage while our crews are working to resolve this issue. The utility said that at this point, it cannot give an estimated time of the possible outage nor the length of time; weather will be a factor.

The co-op's customers are advised to take the necessary precautions to prepare for another outage.  If you see or experience a downed power line, do not go near it.
