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:
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.
