Superdome commission meets about outage
NEW ORLEANS- The manager of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans is recommending that dome officials have an engineering study done with an eye toward changing the stadium's emergency power systems.
Doug Thornton says that idea has been in the works since well before the Super Bowl - when half the dome went dark for more than an hour.
Thornton noted that a weakness with the current system is that it's designed to keep electrical systems operating during an emergency evacuation - not during a temporary outage when crowds remain in the building.
