Today's power outage affected the entire city, plus at least an area north of town, and the city of Belvue. Shortly before the power was restored I was advised that Westar was estimating the power would be back on at 2:00 p.m. The power was restored at approximately 12:23 p.m.
I sent out two nixles regarding the electrical outage - I was 'victimized' by the autocorrect function on my tablet...Westar was changed to Westward...which I corrected, but then it was changed again...to Westwar...autocorrect tried to get me on the second nixle too, but, the ... saved me...
There was also a report that the outage only affected 1,o00 Westar customers - keep in mind that Westar considers the entire city as one (1) of its customers.
