An islandwide power outage affected V.I. Water and Power Authority customers on St. Croix for just over an hour Friday morning.

WAPA spokesman Jean Greaux Jr. said in a news release Friday that the interruption, which occurred at 8:07 a.m., was a result of the loss of generation capacity at the Estate Richmond Power Plant. Power was restored at approximately 9:20 a.m., Greaux confirmed over the phone to The Daily News.
