Newscast goes dark thanks to power outage

BEAVERTON, Oregon – For a news team in Oregon, the lights may go out, but the show must go on.

Take a look at the video posted above during their morning show.

Utility company PGE says a squirrel came in contact with some electrical equipment causing an outage.

They estimate more than 9,000 customers, including the news station, were left in the dark.

The power was restored to most customers about three hours later.
