More than 2,100 Duke Energy customers were without power in the southern portion of Fairfield, and included many businesses from Bypass Ohio 4 south just north of Woodridge Boulevard.
Duke Energy has not listed the cause of the outage at this time, but it’s expected to be related to storm.
Duke Energy now estimates power to be completely restored by 6:45 p.m.
Fairfield Public Works Director Ben Mann said the city’s traffic signals were operational due to its battery backup system. One battery backup did fail, but he said crews were able to connect a portable generator. They had additional generators on hand in case the power disruption would have lasted longer than 24 hours.
