UPDATED STORY: A failure at a electrical substation plunged much of Lansing into darkness for almost an hour on Friday afternoon.
A BWL spokesman says workers were doing routine maintenance at a substation when something went wrong.
The problem at that one substation took out three other substations and knocked out power to be 17,938 customers - most of them in downtown Lansing and the west side. There were also some outages on the north side and in DeWitt Township.
Consumers Energy, which covers much of greater Lansing outside of the city limits, did not report any outages.
BWL is still trying to figure out exactly what happened at the substation that triggered the outage.
The outage brought court proceedings to a halt and sent many state employees streaming for the exits of their buildings. Officers also went out to police major intersections where street lights went out.
Many other customers, who didn't end up losing power, did experience a power surge or flicker as the outage happened. The lights flipped on and off at WLNS-TV and a power surge hit General Motors' Delta Township plant. Work in the paint and body shop stopped for a few minutes, but a spokesman says the rest of the plant was unaffected.
ORIGINAL STORY: A power outage plunged much of Lansing into the dark on Friday afternoon.
The outage seems to have struck downtown Lansing, including city and state offices and the county courthouse.
It also seems to have struck the west side of the city, well into Eaton County.
Lansing Police say the power is out at many intersections and are dispatching officers to control traffic at the busier ones.
Delta Township is also reminding to treat intersections with lights that don't work as four-way stop signs.
Lansing Police say there wasn't an accident they were aware off that triggered the outage.
A spokesman for the Lansing Board of Water and Light was still gathering information as of 3pm and was unable to explain what caused the outage or talk about how many customers were affected.
Consumers Energy, which serves greater Lansing, says it doesn't have reports of any outages.
6 News has multiple crews working this story and will update the website and Facebook as information comes in.
