Power outage in Waterloo knocks KWWL off air

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) - A power outage knocked KWWL off the air for about 45 minutes Sunday morning.

We were off the air during almost all of our morning newscast.

Around 8 a.m., we were one of about 1,000 Mid-American Energy customers to lose power.

The power came back on around 8:40 a.m..

Mid-American says an equipment failure occurred involving a lightning arrestor.
