More than 14,000 homes and businesses in Bloomington briefly lost power during a morning power outage. A spokeswoman for Ameren Illinois says a malfunctioning device at a substation is to blame for today's blackout. The homes and businesses in Bloomington and nearby Normal went dark around 9:30 a.m., but the lights were back on by 10:40 a.m.
Officials say the outage affected both Ameren and Corn Belt Energy customers.
