The College of William and Mary lost power throughout campus at approximately 10:12 p.m. Sunday. Power was restored around 11:30 p.m.

The outages came at the tail end of a late winter storm that struck the Williamsburg area, leaving a little more than an inch of snow in its wake. Eyewitnesses reported seeing a flash of light followed by a loud “boom” before the power went out.

Emergency lights took affect and, according to the William and Mary Police Department, there was not an increase in calls to the station.

A call to the College’s weather report line, 221-1SNO, found that the College has yet to update the service as of 12:00 a.m. Monday.

Monroe Hall and Sorority Court did not suffer any loss of power during the outage.
