On a hot summer day the last thing you'd want to be without is air conditioning, but that's exactly what happened to an estimated 9,000 Kentucky Utilities customers Sunday afternoon in Lexington.

The outage was from American Avenue to Higbee Mill Road, which covered a large portion of the Harrodsburg Road area.

According to KU, a big tree fell in a wooded area behind the Picadome fire department building on Harrodsburg Road and took out transmission and distribution lines.

According to KU's online outage map, all of the power was restored by early evening.
