STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — With dark streets and storefronts in Steamboat Springs, the almost-full moon was extra bright for about an hour.

Yampa Valley Electric Association’s Facebook stated “We are currently experiencing a feeder outage from the Brooklyn substation affecting 2,300 members.”

At 9:17 p.m. Saturday, crews dispatched to the issue expect about 45 minutes until the power was restored. Power was back up and running by 9:48 p.m.

Jim Jennings with YVEA said the outage was caused by equipment failure.
