Transformer Problem Causing Power Outage on Quinnipiac University Campus

A blown transformer is causing a power outage to one section of the main Quinnipiac University campus in Hamden.

A spokesman for the school said the issue began Friday night and affected three residence halls where several hundred students are housed. Students without power were asked to stay with friends who had power, take a bed in a room that is unassigned, or take a bed in a rec center that was set up as a temporary shelter as crews worked to correct the issue.

As of Saturday morning, two halls had been restored but the third remains without power.

There is no estimate on when power will be fully restored.

No other information was immediately available.
