More than 1000 Westar Energy customers in Douglas County lost power last night. Most outages appeared to be along Iowa Street between 23rd and 6th Streets, according to an outage map on the company's site.
A company representative was unable to provide an estimated time for when power would be restored, but said employees would work as long as it took to fix the problem. Power was restored early Thursday morning.
Kansas University dorms on the 1700 block of Engel Road, and surrounding neighborhoods are among residences affected.
