Kentucky Utilities says an insulator problem at a substation led to a power outage Wednesday night in the Richmond Road area in Lexington. It affected more than 6,000 customers, which included businesses temporarily left in the dark. All power has been restored, according to K-U.
Lexington Police are asking motorists to avoid areas where traffic signals are dark due to power outages from the storms. Specifically, Liberty Road at New Circle Road and Versailles Road near the Blue Grass Parkway.
