City gives update on morning power outage

Redundant electric infrastructure in Lebanon allowed power to be restored to around 3-thousand meters this morning, while repairs continued on the system. Lebanon Electric Department Supervisor Travis Long said the outage occurred when a lightning arrester on a main transformer failed.

According to Long, all meters on the City Utility system should be operating…..

Long reports that at all times Lebanon Electric crews are working to make sure that everyone is receiving electricity. Lebanon residents are reminded to report a power outage or other utility concern, call (417) 322-9001 not the Lebanon Police Department.
