Power outage delays start of California Legislature

SACRAMENTO, California (AP) – A power outage in the California capital has left much of the city center in the dark and delayed the start of the state legislature.

The Sacramento Municipal Utilities District reported that 650 customers were without electricity on Thursday. That number represents thousands of people who were damaged in several office buildings and the state Capitol.

The service’s website said crews were working to replace a transformer. It was estimated that electricity would be restored by 11 a.m. The state legislature was scheduled to meet at 9 p.m.

The interruption delayed the Assembly by half an hour. The state Senate planned to meet in a legislative committee room in a nearby building.
