Power Restored to Buildings at UK After Two-hour Outage
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 20, 2014) — Power has been restored to all buildings on the University of Kentucky campus that lost power around 5:30 p.m. today with the exception of one building. Most of the buildings and traffic lights lost power on the main UK campus during a severe thunderstorm when lightening struck a main KU powerline near campus. The outage lasted about two and a half hours.
UK and Kentucky Utilities crews began working immediately to restore service. All residential power except University Trails Apartments has been restored. Residents of that building are asked to follow the KU outage map online to determine when power will be restored. Visit the map here: http://lge-ku.com/customer-service/outages. Power has been restored to traffic lights on around the UK campus as well.
