The power went out about an hour ago.

Tried to call the City of Alcoa Utility Dept, their phones were out of service. Their online outage map was not updated. Tried to call the city's main number. It was out of service, too.

Out of curiosity, tried to call the Fire and Police departments. Their phones were also out of service.

Could be a flaw in their ability to serve the community.

That's an old report. There was service last night in a different area and it was announced. This outage was apparently (according to a neighbor) caused by some phone lines falling on some power lines causing some blown transformers.
