Lyon-Coffey's Burlington substation powered down temporarily after lightning strike

Lightning has caused some issues for the Lyon-Coffey Electric system in central Coffey County on Wednesday.


Member Services spokesman Mike Tweedy says damage to the Burlington substation initially knocked out power to around 100 customers Wednesday afternoon. However, the damage was such that the entire substation had to be powered down for repairs.

Repairs were completed around 3 pm, about an hour after they started. About 200 customers were impacted.
