Update: Power Restored after Sparking Power Line Falls
News

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Sparks flew high into the air as power surged through a downed power line on the Southside this morning.

First Coast News anchor Jeannie Blaylock was on the scene at Atlantic Boulevard near Episcopal High School as the still-live power line flamed on and on until JEA could cut the power.

For safety's sake, she stayed in her car as she shot the video.

JEA spokesperson Gerri Boyce said about 1,800 customers were without power for about two hours.

Boyce said a static line (top line) fell, taking out part of a circuit, and that weather was the cause.
