My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

It’s the middle of the summer in southern Arizona, and the scorching temperatures and monsoon weather are bringing power outages along for the ride.

On Thursday afternoon, upwards of 800 TEP (Tucson Electric Power) customers were without power on Tucson’s northwest side. The outage initially affected 6,000 people throughout the Casas Adobes, Catalina and Cortaro areas. By 4 p.m., power had been restored to all customers except those in Catalina.

This came on an extremely hot day in Tucson when the temperature hit 110 degrees at 1:45 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. Tucsonans are used to power outages, especially during the summer. You can stay up to date on outages throughout the region by checking out these interactive maps from TEP and Trico Electric Cooperative.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
