AUSTIN (KXAN) - Thousands of customers in central east Austin and southeast Austin were without power due to a substation failure.
According to Leslie Sopko, spokesperson for Austin Energy, the Pedernales substation malfunctioned just after 9 p.m. Sopko says they don't know what caused the substation to fail but they have crews working to determine what needs to be repaired.
Preliminary review indicates the outage does not appear to be flood related.
Austin Energy said power was restored to approximately 10,000 customers about 11:30 p.m. The cause was still under investigation.
According to the Austin Energy outage map, most of the outages were along East Cesar Chavez Street, east of IH-35 and south towards Oltorf Street.
