SPANISH FORK — Power to all Rocky Mountain Power customers affected by a Wednesday morning outage has been restored.

The outage, which started just after 9 a.m., affected an estimated 10,000 customers in southern end of Utah County, Juab County, including Mona and Nephi, and some smaller communities in northern Sanpete County.

Power was restored just after 11 a.m.

"It was clearly a problem in a substation. We'll do an investigation into that to determine what hapepened," said Rocky Mountain Power spokesman Dave Eskelsen.

Earlier, RMP had reported the problem appeared to be a the Spanish Fork substation.

Eskelsen said it may take awhile to determine the exact cause of the problem.

With traffic signals not working, there were several fender benders reported in Springville alone.

Drivers were confused over treating a light that is out as a four way stop, or lights that were blinking red.

There were no serious injuries, but certainly a lot of damage to cars related to this outage.
