Update: PNM says power outages are plaguing the city

Residents along the North Valley's Fourth Street corridor aren't in the dark any more. But Albuquerque customers are still without power at about 50 other outage sites.
From a PNM news blast:

Crews are working to restore power to those customers. The other outages affect less than 300 people, mostly single homes at this point. An additional 100 +/- customers are affected by 9 outages in the Valencia area.

The utility says extra workers are responding to the outages, and that they'll work through the night if necessary. PNM says that it could take "several hours" for some customers to get their power back.

Earlier this evening, PNM says about 5,300 customers, the largest group affected in the city, lost power because of an equipment failure at their Montano substation. The failure was caused by strong winds.

PNM advises people to avoid downed power lines.

Call (888) DIAL-PNM (888-342-5766) and say "Outage" to report an outage or downed line. To stay current on outage updates, follow "PNMtalk" on Twitter or find them on Facebook. There's also an outage map with estimated restoration times at PNM.com/outage.
