There are multiple reasons for the power outages. Woodtv.com reports:
A utility pole caught on fire in the 1800 block of Eastern Avenue SE around 11 a.m., then a truck hit a utility pole at an unknown exact location, and a transformer grid went out, officials told 24 Hour News 8.
Some of the affected intersections are College Avenue and Michigan Street NE, and Agler Avenue and Eastern Avenue SE.
