Update: Power back on at Cherry Point

Published: Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 04:19 PM.

Power has been restored to homes and buildings at Cherry Point after some early morning thunderstorms caused outages on the base.

Lightning caused the damage, according to a release from Cherry Point, and crews worked throughout the morning to restore power.

Cherry Point officials had been making arrangements to open a shelter should the outages last longer than expected, but that never happened.

Some traffic signals were out on base, but the mess hall remained open.

Should anyone in a base building not have power, contact the Facilities Maintenance Department Service Desk at 466-4363 or 466-4364 to report the problem. 

Residents whose homes are still without power can contact AMCC at 877-509-2424.
