Raven knocks out power in downtown Anchorage

A raven to blame for an hour-long power outage Sunday afternoon in much of downtown Anchorage won't ever darken Alaska's largest city again.

Municipal Light and Power workers found its carcass at a switchyard where its wings shorted out electrical lines.

The Anchorage Daily News reports the mishap brought down three substations serving about a third of downtown.
