Power restored to Lake Worth

A CBS12 Weather Camera captures a majority of Lake Worth without power early Thursday morning.

Power has been restored to Lake Worth, just before 6:30 a.m.

According to the city, the full service area is restored.

Earlier, thousands of people were left in the dark and heat Wednesday night into Thursday morning while crews worked to restore power.

According to the Lake Worth Utilities power tracker map, 27,000 customers were without power at the time of the failure.

The power outage was apparently caused by some sort of equipment failure at the Hypoluxo switching station, according to the City of Lake Worth. Crews will start restoring customers from the power plant.

Full restoration is expected by 8 a.m. Thursday morning.
