Power outages were reported around south Toledo Tuesday afternoon, after businesses, homes and traffic lights lost power.

Toledo Edison's outage map showed 1,500 customers affected in the Glendale Avenue area Tuesday around 2 p.m. with a cause "pending investigation." The site had an estimated restoration time of 4 p.m. but around 2:15 p.m. power was restored.
