LAS VEGAS( FOX5 )-. NV Energy reported more than 600 customers lacked power after 13 power poles were torn down by a forklift near Polaris Avenue and West Sundown roadway.

The power failures were initially reported at around 12 p.m. in locations near Stone Junction and West Russell Roadway and South Valley View Boulevard. There were still 346 clients without power since 9:50 p.m. Friday. The company said it expects power to be totally restored there by Wednesday, Aug. 15 at 5 p.m.

” He would need to strike that thing pretty hard to strike one and then knock the rest of them down,” Stephen Kaufman, who operates at a warehouse nearby, said.

” Our scanners are down. Our computer systems are down, so we can’t not do anything right now,” Jaray Lockhart, who drives a forklift for a various company in the area, stated.

It even caused traffic control near Sunset Roadway and Las Vegas Boulevard to go dark.

” They have actually got the streets obstructed off, they’re not letting individuals walk down that street. So I’m figuring there’s excessive electrical energy in the street for them to let somebody in fact stroll down there,” Kaufman said.

According to a spokesperson from NV Energy, the forklift was not owned by the power company.
