UPDATE: Power has been fully restored to more than 3,000 Evergy customers after a brief power outage in Salina late Monday morning.
Power was lost just after 11 a.m. to a widespread area from Crawford and Montrose east to east of Ohio Street, and from the Oakdale Park area to as far south as Kansas Wesleyan University.
A handful of major intersections, including Ohio and Crawford, lost power to traffic signals and required Salina Police officers to direct traffic until power was restored.
As of early Monday afternoon, Evergy has not said what caused the brief outage.
More than 3,000 Evergy customers are without power.
According to Everly, an area stretching from Crawford and Montrose east to east of Ohio Street and from Oakdale Park south to at least Kansas Wesleyan University is without power.
At least 3,018 customers have lost power. Several intersections are without power to traffic signals. Please use caution if driving in these areas.
Evergy has not reported a cause for the outage, but expects power to be fully restored by 1 p.m.
