A power outage hit parts of Great Falls on Sunday.
As of 8:12 a.m., the NorthWestern Energy said that the outage affected more than 3,000 customers.
"Customers" often refers to a business or a residence, so the number of people without electricity is often much higher than that figure.
We received numerous reports from people on the east side of Great Falls that they were without power, and several from people south of Great Falls.
NorthWestern Energy dispatched a crew to work on restoring power, and said that all power was restored by 10:55 a.m.
Initial reports indicate that the outage was caused by a blown transformer, but we have not yet been able to confirm that.
People began posting messages about the outage on the KRTV Facebook page at about 7:40 a.m. Among the messages:
Safety reminder: if traffic lights are not working due to a power outage, the intersection must be treated as a four-way stop.
