Contractor Sued Over Hatteras And Ocracoke Islands Power Outage

 Wednesday, August 2, 2017


The Wallace and Graham law firm in Salisbury, N.C. has announced a lawsuit against PCL Civil Constructors, Inc. in the wake of the power outages that crippled Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands on North Carolina’s Outer Banks on July 27. The power outage was caused when PCL reportedly drove a steel casing through underground transmission cables as part of a project to replace the Bonner Bridge. As a result, thousands of community members in the Hatteras and Ocracoke areas have lost power and even more residents and tourists have had to evacuate.
