There was no power in Blair's four portables from late Wednesday night until approximately 9:00 am on Thursday morning. According to Building Service Manager James Brown, the power most likely went out when a power surge tripped the circuit breaker.
The foreign language classes stationed in the portables were moved into the SAC and available classrooms. The portables, which are being used for the first time this year, have never had electrical problems before.
Brown did not know if the portables would be without power in the future but he "sure hopes not."
