Update: Power Outage Affects Leetsdale Industrial Park

Some tenants, including the Quaker Valley administrative offices, were without power on Tuesday. Power has been restored.

UpdA power outage caused by a substation in the Leetsdale Industrial Park had some tenants operating without electricity on Tuesday.

Quaker Valley School District administrative offices were one of the locations affected by the outage in the industrial park.

Joseph Marrone, director of administrative services, said Tuesday night that Duquesne Light electrical crews and the property management company were working throughout Tuesday to restore power.

School officials said electricity is back on today.

Tina Vojtko, district spokeswoman, said the power was off when employees arrived to work Tuesday. While phone lines remained connected, the offices did not have heat, she said.

Back up generators allowed some employees to continue working but several, including support staff were sent home around 10 a.m. Tuesday.

It's unclear how widespread the outages were and whether recent strong winds were to blame. A message left for a Duquesne Light Co. spokesman was not returned. A manager at Chapman Properties also could not be reached for comment.
