Power restored to Cedar Rapids area

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Power has been restored to about 12,000 customers of Alliant Energy in the Cedar Rapids area.

Customers in Cedar Rapids and parts of Palo and Vinton lost power Tuesday night after a circuit breaker malfunctioned about 8:45 p.m.

Power was restored in Cedar Rapids by 10:15 p.m. and around midnight in the other cities.

Alliant officials are looking into what caused the outage, but say a giant circuit breaker at a generating station transmission line was tripped.
