At approximately 10:40 a.m. on Oct. 24, multiple academic and residential buildings lost power and Wi-Fi access as the result of a squirrel that got into a transformer and blew a fuse near the Torrey Life Sciences building (TLS) at the University of Connecticut Storrs campus.

Powerlines went down by TLS, causing a circuit to fail, UConn spokesperson Stephanie Reitz said.

"Life Announcers," a new video by WHUS, gives a behind-the-scenes look at the campus radio station.
