Power Restored To 2,100 Homes Without Power

Power is now restored to all 2,100 customers affected by this morning's outage in southwest Reno.

A Sierra Pacific spokesman said customers living along Joy lake Road were the last to get their power back at around one this afternoon.

A downed power line in the Montreux area was pinpointed as the cause of the 9 a-m. Outage.

The outage affected mostly homes and business along Mt. Rose Highway, including part of the Mt. Rose Ski resort.

KOLO 8's transmitter on Slide Mountain was also knocked out by the outage.

As of 2:15 p.m., however, KOLO's signal has still not been restored
