A 42-minute power outage Thursday night was the result of an equipment problem at a utility substation in Elizabethtown.
The outage was caused when a communication line at the substation on Gaither Station Road in Elizabethtown failed and fell into a capacitor bank. Capacitor banks are used to maintain desired voltage, said Chris Whelan, vice president of communications for Louisville Gas and Electric Co. and Kentucky Utilities Co.
The line probably failed because of storms that had come through the area earlier, possibly related to wind or lightning, she said.
