(CNN) – The cause of Sunday’s power outage at the Super Bowl in New Orleans has been traced to an electrical relay device, Entergy New Orleans Inc. announced Friday.
The device has been removed from service and replacement equipment is being evaluated, the company said in a news release.
The 35-minute electrical outage at the Superdome set off a storm of social media amusement among viewers and inspired advertising tweets with blackout twists.
