Power restored at St. John's after outage

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) – A power outage Monday afternoon affected a hospital's parking garage.

Leaders with City Water, Light and Power (CWLP) say the outage forced the use of a backup generator at a St. John's garage and affected traffic lights in the area. CWLP crews say they re-routed power and restored service to the St. John's parking facility at about 3:40 p.m. Traffic lights also have power back. 

An updated press release says the garage, which is located on Mason Street, was the only part of St. John's affected in the outage.

CWLP crews say “final repairs” could extend into Monday evening as they work to figure out what caused the problem.
