JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) -

Electricity was restored for thousands of Johnson City Power Board customers who lost power early Wednesday morning. Officials say the Tennessee Valley Authority had an equipment issue at the Boone Hydro Plant.

We're told since JCPB takes electricity from TVA at this point, four of distribution substations were affected: Boones Creek, Gray, Colonial Heights, and Cedar Creek.

Those substations serve more than 15,000 JCPB customers.

Customers had their electricity back on in less than three hours.


PREVIOUS STORY:

Thousands of Johnson City Power Board customers lost power early Wednesday morning.

A Washington County 9-1-1 dispatcher said as many as five substations were off-line because of a problem that involved the Tennessee Valley Authority.  By 1:20 a.m., the power board reported through its automated website that more than 12,398 customers were without power in the Gray, Boones Creek, Sulphur Springs, Colonial Heights, and Fordtown communities.  That number increased steadily starting around midnight.

No information was available on when power would be restored.

Here's a live link to the Johnson City Power Board outage map.  

The JCPB automated website said 91% of Gray was without power.  66% of Colonial Heights was impacted.

As of 1:20 a.m., no updates were posted on the Power Boards Twitter account: @JCPowerBoard .
