Lights Go Out at the US Capitol!


The United States Capitol was plunged into darkness Wednesday night.

Lots of people took to Twitter when the dome's exterior lights went out, commenting on the odd sight.

A tweet on the US Capitol Twitter account read, "[we're] aware of the power outage on the capitol exterior and [are] working to address the problem."

A few minutes later, the lights slowly came back on.

There's no word on what caused the lights to go out, but there was a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for the area until 10pm.
