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.
There was no indication the outage was related to heavy power demand, despite the high temperatures Tuesday.
