Power outages restored quickly for northwest, north central Emporia

Power outages in different parts of Emporia have been restored.


Westar spokesman Nick Bundy says close to 1,100 customers in northwest Emporia lost power around 9 am after a switch failed at the company's 30th and Prairie substation. That outage was restored about an hour later.

Shortly after noon, another 80 customers lost power near Emporia State University after a squirrel caused a malfunction. The outage was restored less than an hour later.
