The power is back on for those Alliant Energy customers who lost it this morning.
According to Justin Foss with Alliant, crews investigated a downed transmission line causing power outages in western Washington County and eastern Keokuk County starting at around 10:30 this morning. At its height 2,500 people were without power. Foss says customers around the Wellman area got their power back at around 2:30, while Keota resident’s power was back on before noon. He adds they’re still awaiting the results of the investigation.
