Update (11 a.m.): After a brief outage, power has been restored to all areas of the Driftwood Cove apartment complex in Greenport, village officials said.

Original story: Parts of the Driftwood Cove apartment complex in Greenport are expected to be without power until mid-afternoon Friday as village electric crews work on equipment.

Employees are replacing a faulty transformer, which is causing the service to be interrupted, village officials said Friday.

The latest outage is not related to last week’s  village-wide black out caused by equipment failure, clerk Sylvia Pirillo said.

In the wake last week’s blackout, Greenport Village residents were told to expect more power outages in the weeks to come.

The first preplanned outage was on Tuesday morning and more can be expected for “a few weeks,” village administrator Paul Pallas said during the village board’s meeting on Monday night.
