City Council Slates Super Bowl Blackout Hearing
Updated 1:45 p.m.
Roger Goodell and Twitter already weighed in on the Superdome blackout, but it's locals' turn to shed some light the end of the week. On Friday, the New Orleans City Council will have their say on the Super Bowl's 34-minute epoch of darkness. City Councilwoman Cynthia Hedge-Morrell called an emergency meeting of the Council's Utility Committee, and she plans to call Entergy on the carpet.
The Council is the official regulator overseeing Entergy New Orleans, and its role as the city's prime power provider. Hedge-Morrell, who chairs the utility committee, said she was "extremely disappointed" about the blackout, and called the incident the "only flaw in an otherwise spectacular Super Bowl experience.
"The Utility Committee will fully investigate this outage. I have directed our advisors to press Entergy New Orleans for answers. Our advisors are already discussing this with Entergy and expect to receive additional information about the cause as it is discovered. We cannot ignore major glitches like this, especially when they occur on the international stage," Hedge-Morrell said in a statement.
While the game went on and the Ravens ended up victorious, the cause and blame for the Super Bowl blackout has yet to be doled out. A device detected a problem at the exact point where Entergy's feeder lines meet the Superdome's power system.
The hearing is set for 9 a.m. Friday in the City Council Chambers at City Hall.
UPDATE: The Council won't be the only outside party looking into the outage. Early this afternoon, Entergy and Superdome management company SMG announced plans to hire a third party expert to investigate the cause of the outage. Entergy, the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District and SMG will team up to select the company, and pass their choice by the NFL before selection. Entergy is continuing its own analysis of the root cause of the outage.
