Residents without power for hours

November 22, 2007


About 1,350 Westar Energy customers in west Lawrence and parts of Lecompton were without power for more than two hours Wednesday.

According to a Westar Energy spokeswoman, a broken cross arm caused the power outage about 1:30 p.m.

Power was restored by 4 p.m.

Residences and businesses from South Lawrence Trafficway to Stone Meadows Drive and Harvard Road to 18th Street, as well as a rural district north to Lecompton, were affected by the power failure.
