KANSAS CITY, Kan. (WIBW) -- Almost 7,000 eastern Kansas residents were without electricity after a transformer went out and knocked out power in one of the utility's main lines.

The Board of Public Utilities website says power went out around 9 a.m. Sunday morning at a substation in Kansas City, Kansas.

Service was restored in the area by late sunday morning.

A BPU spokesman said the utility was trying to pinpoint what happened to cause the outage.
