Columbia outages caused by power trip at substation


Columbia Power and Light posted on Friday that a power trip at a substation caused multiple power outages.

Utility workers said a circuit at the Rebel Hill substation tripped three other circuits and caused traffic lights to go out around town. Crews bypassed an underground cable to restore the power, according to a post.

One of the outages was reported on Old Highway 63 and Broadway at about 7:30 a.m. Friday. Lights were back on in the area by 8 a.m.

Joint Communications later issued an alert about power being out at Stadium Boulevard and Tiger Avenue adjacent to the University of Missouri campus.

The Columbia power outage map showed more than 100 customers were without power in the area. Crews have been assigned to restore power.
