Iguana causes power outage for 20,000 in Florida

Poor iguana. Story here.

May 8th, 2008 POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- Power has been restored to 20,000 people in north Broward County, after an iguana caused a short circuit. The critter came in contact with some high-voltage equipment, which triggered Thursday's outage.

Electricity was out for roughly half an hour.

The iguana wasn't as lucky. Florida Power & Light spokesman Mayco Villafana says: "It's gone to another place."
