      4,000 hit with power outage early Tuesday morning

      According to the Marquette Board of Light and Power roughly 4,000 residents were hit with an outage around 5:56 a.m. Tuesday morning due to a downed tree.

      By 6:29 a.m. they had restored power to 1,100 customers, and continued to restore all but 1,600. By 8:14 a.m., all residents were up and running.

      The MBLP is still looking into the reason such a large area was affected.
