Our crews are working to determine the cause of a power outage impacting 1,426 customers in northwest Omaha since noon. Those impacted are between the boundaries of Kansas Ave. to the north and Blondo St. to the south, between 180th St. and 168th St.

It looks like a construction crew accidentally hit an underground cable line. We are working to make repairs and hope to have power restored by 1:30 p.m., barring an unforeseen complications.
