WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Power is back up after some Progress Energy customers experienced outages across the area Monday morning.

WWAY spoke with Progress Energy, and they say the outages were caused by a problem with a transmission line, but that power was repaired for most customers as of 7:13 a.m.

Progress Energy crews are investigating to find what happened to the line to cause the outages, but say power in the area was only down for about 5 minutes.

    I was curious why I lost power this morning and was glad to see a report here that at least provided some information about the outage.

    It made one think about how important electricity is when it’s 29 degrees outside…and you won’t mind a 10% increase as much now.
