Widespread Power Outage In Tucson

From The KOLD News 13 Newsroom

A power outage affected large sections of Tucson on Monday night.

The outage happened just before 6:30 p.m. affecting areas from south of Interstate 10 to as far north as East Broadway.

A spokesman for Tucson Electric Power says problems developed in a line coming from TEP's south side plant, causing several breakers to open.  Crews spent all evening closing the breakers, and power was restored to all customers by about 9:00 p.m.  TEP is not sure if the weather played a role in the outage.

Outages affected areas on the South Side near I-19 and Valencia Road. Street lights and traffic signals were out at many major intersections in the affected areas.
