UPDATE FROM BWL: As of 3:48 P.M., power was restored to all customers still affected by the outage. All customers are now restored to power. Approximately 800 customers were restored within 1 minute of the outage starting. We believe the outage was due to a mechanical failure. The mechanical failure was most likely caused by a tree limb making contact with the wires.
