A tree limb is to blame for the afternoon power outage in central Lincoln.
Lincoln electric crews continue to work on a power outage that happened during the noon hour. At around 12:30, LES spokesperson Kelly Porter says the wind caused a tree limb to break and land on a power line near 23rd and C streets.
Power went out to nearly 4–thousand customers. The outage affected 13th to 30th and A to K streets. As of 4 p.m. Tuesday, about 600 customers were still without power.
