Power has been restored after an outage in Wichita left more than 4,400 Westar customers in the dark early Saturday morning.

The areas affected were primarily south and north-central Wichita. Several traffic lights were out as well.

A Westar spokesperson attributed the outages to a downed power line.

The number of customers without power dropped to about 1,500 just before 8:30 a.m., and nearly all customers had their power back by early afternoon.
