Power’s been out this morning…

Apparently it’s out across the state of Florida.

TAMPA – An unknown problem in the statewide power grid has sparked widespread outages throughout the Tampa Bay area this afternoon, as utility companies scramble to figure out what went wrong.

Tampa Electric was fielding calls from customers whose power went out this afternoon, said Laura Plumb, utility spokeswoman. She said she didn’t know how many people were without electricity or when it will be fixed.

TECO is part of the statewide grid, she said, and because power is out in the Bay area doesn’t mean the problem has occurred here.

The Miami Herald is also reporting massive power outages throughout South Florida, including Miami, Doral, Westchester and Pembroke Pines. Reports of outages extended into Palm Beach, a Florida Power & Light spokeswoman said.
