(KFVS) - Early morning storms have caused outages multiple people in the Heartland.

All homes had power restored by 5:30 p.m.

Gibson Electric reported 163 members without power.

The largest outage, affecting 158 members, was north of Kenton, where crews worked diligently to replace seven broken three-phase poles.

A second outage was northeast of Kenton and the third outage was east of Trenton.

However, we have a number of broken poles and the process of replacing them and putting the wire back up is time-consuming, so the outage will be lengthy.
