POWER RESTORED: Outage Reported Sunday
Some people in the Des Moines metro had to face the cold without power on Sunday.
At 5:30 p.m., around 4,800 customers lost power in Grimes, Johnston, and Urbandale.
Officials say wind blew debris into a transformer at a substation in Johnston causing the power outage. Power came back on at around 7:00 p.m.
Around 9:00 p.m., power went out again — this time knocking out electricity for nearly 7,400 customers. The power is back on for those customers.
