A wayward kite blown into a power line caused a brief electric outage for parts of downtown and Texas State University yesterday afternoon.
No one was injured when the large kite got entwined in a transmission line behind Jowers Center on Aquarena Springs Drive, city spokesperson Melissa Millecam said. Power was off for about 25 minutes starting at 3 p.m. before San Marcos electric utility crews restored service.
Winds averaging 25 mph on Thursday, kite runners were out in numbers.
