NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Officials of the utility company supplying power to the Superdome say the Super Bowl outage occurred when sensing equipment detected an ``abnormality'' in the system.
A statement from Entergy and the Superdome said Sunday that a piece of equipment monitoring electrical load sensed the abnormality and opened a breaker, partially cutting power.
The statement said backup generators kicked in before full power could be restored.
The Super Bowl was delayed for 34 minutes.
