Power outage in Carthage


More than a thousand Carthage residents have been without power Wednesday afternoon.

A spokesperson with Carthage Water and Electric tells us everyone should have their power back by around 6:30 p.m.

The spokesperson says at around 3:30 there was a failure with a piece of equipment at the main substation.  Crews are now shifting feeders out to another substation and customers will get power restored in phases.

Outages have affected the north and west portion of the city.
