The lights are out in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The outage hit around 11:15 a.m PT, just as the second day of CES 2018 was ramping up. 

The Consumer Technology Association, which runs CES, said on Twitter: "There is an isolated power outage at the Las Vegas Convention Center. We are working hard to resolve this and appreciate your patience."
