Thousands without Power


Between 2,000 and 3,000 Empire District Electric Customers are without power.

Empire officials say equipment failure at a substation west of Carthage, MO is to blame for a power outage.

It happened around six Thursday evening.

Officials say crews are working to restore power now but customers should not expect to have power again until at least between midnight and 2 a.m.
