UPDATE: At 11:30 p.m., Huntsville Utilities reported service was restored to the majority of customers. Crews were still onsite performing inspections and maintenance. Call 256-535-4448 if you are having a service-related issue.

Sunday night's large outage was due to a part failing inside the substation, and the substation provides power to many parts of the city.

The outage in Hampton Cove was due to a wreck.

According to their power outage map, at least 17,000 customers had their power knocked out. 

It's unclear what caused the outage. Earlier in the evening, the power company reported an outage at Redstone Arsenal and then around 10:16 stated that service in the Hampton Cove area had been restored, but they were still "on site performing inspections and maintenance."
