Darkness descending on downtown Cleveland

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

An underground connection has been blamed for all the streetlights that are out downtown.

With the new casino and the Indians playing in town this week, the dark streets have raised safety concerns.

Cleveland Public Power officials said the problem is an underground connection that is decades old and the cause is hard to find. A representative said, "It's a process where we start at the beginning of the feeder. We keep searching the whole thing out until we can comfortably identify where the problem occurred."
