Power Outage In Riley And Pottawatomie Counties



Updated: 4:20 p.m. Sunday

Power was restored to Riley and Pottawatomie County Westar customers about 35 minutes after the reported problem. Westar Spokeswoman Gina Penzig tells KMAN the problem was due to a breaker going out. More than 1,800 customers were impacted during the brief outage, with traffic lights at several busy intersections in Manhattan impacted.

A power outage was reported just before four Sunday afternoon, affecting 217 Riley County Westar customers, and 1,602 Pottawatomie County customers. In addition traffic lights are not functioning on Tuttle Creek Boulevard from Bluemont to Poyntz Avenue. Motorists are urged to use caution at intersections.

KMAN is attempting to get further information.
