UPDATE: 

Both feeders are now back online.

The Tunstall substation feeder that serves the Sharon community, including Tunstall High and Tunstall Middle, is back in service. The feeder serves about 250 customers.

It went out of service at 10:10 a.m. and came back online at 12:01 p.m.

The Schoolfield feeder serves 1,200 customers along portions of Memorial Drive, Lanier Avenue, Park Avenue, Bishop Road, and then across the river on Piedmont Drive from the Robertson Bridge to Mount Cross Road. A portion of Westover Drive and other streets in these areas also were affected. The feeder went out of service at 9:47 a.m. and came back online at 12:18 p.m.
