UPDATE as of 8:55 p.m.: Columbia Power and Light crews said a Friday power outage may have been caused by a tree that fell on power lines between Stewart Road and Maupin Road in central Columbia.
More than 1,100 Columbia Water and Light customers are in the dark after two power outages were reported Friday.
The electric company's outage map shows a little more than 1,000 customers were affected by an outage along Providence Road. Another outage affecting dozens more was reported on Stadium Boulevard. Water and Light's outage map shows a repair crew is headed to the scene.
Our crew at the scene said the traffic signal at the intersection of Providence Road and Mick Deaver Memorial Drive was off. Columbia authorities directed traffic at the intersection.
It's unclear what caused the outages at this time. We reached out to the city's electric utility after 8 p.m., but haven't heard back.
