Scattered power outages strike downtown Toledo, east side and Oregon

As many as 3,000 Toledo Edison customers in downtown Toledo, East Toledo, and Oregon experienced scattered power outages and power surges this morning.

The Wings Station, a new restaurant at 614 Adams St. between Huron and Erie streets, reported it was temporarily closed by a power outage. Across Adams Street, Charter One Bank's downtown location experienced a temporary loss of power.

The Blade also had a power surge around 9:20 a.m. today that knocked out some lights temporarily.

However, Toledo Edison said it first received reports of outages at 9:47 a.m. All power was restored by 10:28 a.m., said spokesman Reggie Strauss.

The outages were believed to have been the result of a substation problem near the East Toledo-Oregon border. Service was restored when power was rerouted around the substation, he said.
