A transformer problem knocked out electric power for about 9,200 Lee’s Summit customers of Kansas City Power & Light Co. on Tuesday.
A company spokeswoman said the transformer problem disrupted service for 50 minutes starting about 8:45 a.m. Crews switched service to a different circuit to restore power as quickly as possible, Courtney Hughley said.
An outage map on the company’s website showed service disruptions in a triangular area south of U.S. 50 along Ranson Road and in another area south of Scruggs Road.
Hughley said a second, shorter outage occurred when crews returned the areas to their normal circuits. This second disruption came around noon and lasted for about 10 minutes.
