Eppson Center Closed Due to Power Outage
The Eppson Center for Seniors will be closed through Thursday, June 29 due to a power outage.
A City of Laramie news release said there is no current estimate of when the power will be restored.
Rich Hendersen, statistician for the Eppson Center, said multiple transformer poles near the center were downed.
Hendersen said the center sent out cold sack lunches to those who normally get hot home delivered meals and that the center did not serve lunch today.
“We have no phones, computers, lights and are concerned about our fridges and freezers,” Hendersen said.
Hendersen said there were some activities at the center this morning, but as of noon the center closed its doors.
As of 4:30 p.m. today, Rocky Mountain Power reports that 117 Laramie customers are still without power.
