September 18, 2012

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — Classes at Shepherd University were suspended for more than two hours Tuesday due to a power outage, the university announced.

Power was restored by about 1:30 p.m. University offices remained open.

Hedgesville (W.Va.) Elementary School also lost power, causing students to be dismissed at 11 a.m. Afternoon prekindergarten was canceled at the school, according to Leah Daniel, spokeswoman for Berkeley County (W.Va.) Schools.

Power was restored to the school at 2:10 p.m., after utility workers replaced a utility pole that caught on fire, Daniel said. A transformer on the pole was burned, she said.

Classes are to resume on schedule Wednesday, Daniel said.
