Downed Power Line Causes Outage Near Staples and Weber

It was lights out for some homes and businesses on Staples near Weber, where American Electric Power crews said an outage resulted from a wire coming down.

Crews were hard at work trying to get power restored. They had to shut off two transformers to get the wire back and electricity restored.

Despite the urgency, some businesses owners were frustrated.

"I'm pretty much shut down. There's not a whole lot we can do right now," said Justin Davis of The Storage Place. "We got money to make here, and the sooner we get it back, the sooner I can start making money here."

AEP said the power outage lasted for about an hour.
