Transmission line failure causes three hour long outage

by

CASSOPOLIS (WKZO) -- About 35-hundred customers of the Midwest Energy Cooperative in Mattawan, Schoolcraft, Lawton, Portage and Kalamazoo were left without power late last night and very early this morning when three substations went dark. 

The power has since returned.

Utility spokesperson Patty Nowlin says they were kept in the dark about exactly what caused a transmission line to fail, which in turn shut down the substations.

She says their customers were returned to service at about 2 a.m.
