However, the hospital’s backup generator kicked in when the power stopped. Regular power had been restored within a few minutes. Auxiliary power had been restored by about 11 a.m., hospital staff reported
Despite the power disruption, patient care never stopped; there was no disruption of service, said Holly Ragan, senior market development for
CHRISTUS® Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs.
An Oncor representative reported the outage was no more than 10 minutes, caused by a tree limb on a power line; it was removed and power quickly restored.
