http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/04/03/capitolevacuated.ap/index.html [Broken]WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Capitol was evacuated shortly after noon Monday after the building briefly lost power.
The building was reopened about an hour later after power was restored...
...a spokeswoman for Potomac Electric Power Co., said the electricity shut off automatically after there was "a momentary drop in voltage due to customer operations up the lines" away from the Capitol.
"The protective equipment sensed the significant change in voltage and tripped," she said.
So much for the balance of powers.
