OPPD crews are now responding to a new circuit lockout. This one is impacting 1,973 customers between Harrison Street and Cary Street, from 64th Street to 84th Street.

A trouble shooter is headed that direction to determine what has caused the lights to go out in this area. Customers lost power at about 2:59 p.m.

Meantime, our crews have determined that a tree falling on on a primary power line, was to blame for the outage that began at 1:34 p.m., impacting 2,171 customers, as noted below.  A tree crew is working on clearing and trimming trees.
