A power outage is affecting parts of Great Falls.

As of 12:19 p.m., NorthWestern Energy said that the outage is affecting an estimated 1,886 customers.

"Customers" often refers to a business or a residence, so the number of people without electricity is often much higher than that figure.

People began reporting the outage at about 11:45 a.m. on Monday.

The outage appears to be affecting people on the west side of town; we have received the following messages on the KRTV Facebook page:

  • Misti Dawn Clark: Any idea why there is no power on the southwest side of town?
  • Tiel Collver: Power just went out on 4th ave sw
  • Emma: Power out 12 st north west side

We do not yet know the cause of the outage.

NorthWestern Energy says that power is expected to be restored by 2:30 p.m. or sooner.

Safety reminder: if traffic lights are not working due to a power outage, the intersection must be treated as a four-way stop.
