It was just another Monday at UPA when the lights went out unexpectedly, resulting in both the Horton and the Learning Center being in darkness.

The incident occurred during lunchtime at 12:45 p.m; however, the power came back on at 12:50 p.m, only lasting about five minutes.

​The students were not completely in the dark, though, since at 12:49 the emergency lights came on.
The sudden predicament kept the administrators and supervisors on their toes, thus resulting in the evacuation of the students out of the gym and auditorium for their safety.

Precautions for future blackouts are using flashlights to light the hallways and emergency lights in classrooms and hallways.

“PG&E said it could have been an accident; they didn’t know,” Cathedral of Faith Operations Manager Lynn Lazo said.
