The lights went out for a few seconds at the White House this morning, according to reporters on the scene who tweeted about the incident.
Yahoo News White House reporter Olivier Knox tweeted that @DCPoliceDept tweeted and then deleted “Something about police at 1900 E St Office of Personnel Management for blown transformer.”
Not sure I’ve ever heard of the lights going out in the West Wing, though I couldn’t rule it out. I’ll give you an update if I hear more. No comment from the White House yet.
UPDATE: According to reports, a power line was served by a work crew nearby.
