Power, Water Restored for Hundreds in Lauderhill

Power and water have been restored for more than 400 businesses and homes in Lauderhill after an afternoon outage.

The suspension in service was caused when a private contractor's crane knocked into a power and water line in the area of State Road 7 and NW 26th Street, according to a tweet from the Lauderhill Fire Rescue Public Information Officer.

Florida Power and Light Company notified city officials at 4:30 p.m. that power would remain off for a few hours as they worked to replace a utility pole and turn power back on, the city said in a press release. The water main will be repaired after that fix is complete. As of 6:20 p.m., services had been restored.

The quality of drinking water should not be affected, the city said.
