Municipal Light & Power is working to restore power to those affected. Julie Harris with M&LP said the outage disrupted power to the area surrounding the intersection of Arctic Boulevard and Fireweed Lane.

As of 1 p.m., M&LP reported that customers east of Arctic Boulevard had power back on and crews were working to get power to those west of Arctic. There was no estimate about when the company would have power back for all residents.
