WAUSAU, Wisc (WSAU) The lights are back on Wausau's east side. Wisconsin Public Service aid earlier about 4,800 customers were without electricity. The outage lasted about 90 minutes.
Most of the outages were north of downtown, along Bridge Street, 6th Street into the Town of Wausau, and east hill. There's a small two-block area downtown where crews are still working on power restoration.
The cause of the outage was equipment failure, and WPS says crews are on-site and are assessing the situation.
