It was “lights out” for Yorktown and area residents last Wednesday evening, Feb. 19, when a high voltage transmission line providing electricity to the city lost power.    Residents and businesses were without power for approximately 2-2.5 hours before power was restored.  
 
Also during the evening, a major water main break occurred at the intersection of Highway 72 and 119.  According to Yorktown City Secretary Robert Mendez, Quest Utilities of San Antonio, contracted with AT&T, hit a water line while drilling for a new post.
 
Yorktown Police Department and TxDOT officials monitored the intersections during the outage, since the traffic lights were not operating.  Several of the local business closed temporarily during the outage.
