NEW ORLEANS- Officials for the Superdome's power company will go before the City Council tomorrow to talk about the power outage that happened during the Super Bowl last Sunday night.

The council is the regulatory agency for Entergy New Orleans.

Superdome and Entergy officials have said the 34-minute outage happened when sensing equipment in the area where Entergy and Superdome equipment intersect detected some sort of anomaly, causing a breaker to open and cut power to half the stadium.

The companies plan to hire a third party company to determine the source of the problem.
