Power Outage Affects About 2,600
BLUE SPRINGS (AP) - A power outage in Blue Springs left 2,600 electric customers without service for about an hour Saturday morning. A spokesman for Aquila says the outage was in east Blue Springs. A police dispatcher said the city got numerous calls about traffic signals not working, but didn't have any serious problems. Aquila officials say the cause of the outage was a bird that landed on a transformer, becoming an electrical conduit between two parts of the equipment causing circuit breakers to open.
