(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A second power outage in a week leaves 2,500 KCP&L customers in the dark.

The outage hit around 5:45 p.m. Monday.

Power was finally restored to everyone about an hour and a half later.

This was the second time in a week KCP&L customers spent part of the night without power.

Around 2,500 customers lost power last Monday.

A KCP&L spokeswoman did not have an immediate cause for the outage but said it is too early to tell if the outages are related.
