CHARLES CITY (KWWL) -

About 1,500 hundred MidAmerican Energy customers in Charles City lost power Wednesday night, after a tree fell on a power line due to weather.

Officials say it happened around 5:20 p.m. And power was restored by 6:05 p.m.

The windy weather also blacked out parts of Black Hawk County. Officials say 1,040 homes from Elk Run Heights to Evansdale and in the surrounding areas were in the dark for about an hour.

Officials describe the problem as an issue with the lines acting like a jump rope, and causing problems for equipment.
