UNDATED -- Stearns Electric and Xcel Energy are dealing with several power outages this afternoon.

Xcel Energy had nearly 2,700 customers without power for less than an hour today, but an Xcel spokeswoman says nearly all of the customers have had their power restored.

According to Stearns Electric's website, there are just under 1,900 customers without power after a main transmission line failed.

The communities of Avon, Albany, Collegeville, St. Joseph and nearby townships are the communities impacted.

Stearns Electric says it hopes to have power restored to all of its customers by 6:00 p.m.
