Power restored to north-west side of Cache County

UPDATE: An electrical outage Tuesday morning left more than 1660 customers without power for several hours.

A spokesman for Rocky Mountain power said the outage affected the communities of Smithfield, Amalga, Benson, Clarkston, Newton and Trenton.

The power outage occurred around 5:30 a.m. and was not restored until 7:30 a.m.

A transmission interruption is reportedly the cause of the outage.

The outage did not affect schools in the Cache County School district and power was restored by the time classes began.

Rocky Mountain Power is asking any customers still without power to report it immediately.
