The U.S. military may have lost track of an F-35 Stealth fighter jet in South Carolina earlier this week, but today in Anchorage Alaska, a manhole cover blew off its hole in front of City Hall and city workers began searching for it. As of this writing, it had not been found.
Firefighters and other city workers searched the roof of City Hall from the Clerk’s office, but the manhole cover was not spotted. The search continues. Update: The cover was finally found inside the hole.
The missing manhole cover may be related to a power outage reported around City Hall and at the Atwood State Office Building on 7th. Chugach Electric reports that 230 customers in downtown Anchorage are without power at this hour.
