A power outage hit thousands in the Glenrock area as a storm passed through Thursday afternoon and evening, cutting power for three hours.
The outage lasted from 3:20 p.m. until power was restored at 6:32 p.m for 2,451 residents in the Glenrock area, said Rocky Mountain Power spokeswoman Margaret Oler.
The utility tested restarted the system after it couldn't find the reason for the outage, she said.
A band of heavy storms producing rain, hail and flash flooding swept through the area Thursday afternoon.
A weather monitoring station in Glenrock recorded a wind gust of approximately 40 mph sometime after 3 p.m. before the station went offline, presumably due to a lack of power.
Utility crews patrolled lines in the area searching for the cause of the outage but found nothing.
"When they don't see anything, then they test the line," Oler said. "In the process of that testing, if it holds in place, and closes that circuit and it holds, they know whatever caused that outage has been removed."
