EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Rhode Island Energy says the on-and-off power outages happening in parts of the East Bay on Sunday were caused by osprey nests.
A spokesperson with RI Energy said they discovered “a couple of nests” on a transmission line at their Warren substation, which caused intermittent power outages throughout the day for people living in the area.
The outages were reported in locations including East Providence and Barrington.
RI Energy says customers should not experience any more interruptions tonight are working with the R.I. Department of Environmental Management to relocate the birds.
