There was a power outage in the early hours of Sunday morning on Sturgeon Bay’s east side. At approximately 2:00 am, Sturgeon Bay Utilities started receiving calls from a large area across their service area on the east side. It seems an electric protection relay tripped at the Michigan Street substation. At that time, all eletrical load was shifted to the 1st Ave substation and customers were back in service around 3:30 am. An officer was sent to the intersection north of Sturgeon Bay where Highways 42 & 57 split to direct traffic at that stoplight. It was later determined the problem was caused by a raccoon which unfortunatly wandered onto the Michigan Street substation. It was reported the raccoon did not survive.
