DENVER (AP) — Nearly 11,000 customers in Denver were without power after a large piece of debris blew into a substation and damaged electrical equipment.
Xcel Energy employees worked late Wednesday night to restore electrical power to 10,970 customers in the LoDo and Ballpark neighborhoods.
Company spokeswoman Michelle Arguayo says power was restored to all customers in the area by 10:15 p.m.
