28 May 2021 | Communication Strategy & Operations Marine Corps Installations East

The main substation that feeds power from Duke Energy to Paradise Point, Berkeley Manor, Midway Park, Heroes Manor, Watkins Grove, Watkins Village, Hospital Point and the 100-area buildings between “A” and Cross Streets continues to be down at this time. After the power went out at approximately 5 p.m. yesterday, Duke ran a series of tests on the transformer in the main substation to determine the cause of the outage and at 10 p.m., determined a faulty piece of equipment needed to be replaced. That part is being shipped from Raleigh today, and Duke estimates power will likely be restored by 4 p.m. today. Due to the outage, DoDEA schools with the exception of Tarawa Terrace Elementary and Delalio Elementary will be closed. All Child Development Centers have power and are operating normally, but will be serving cold food. The following MCCS facilities are also closed due to the outage:

-Marston Pavilion
