The Rocky Mountain Power outage map shows a major outage in the Ogden area.

WEBER COUNTY, Utah, July 14, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Crews from Rocky Mountain Power have restored power to more than 9,600 customers who lost it Wednesday evening.

The RMP webpage says the cause of the outage is a substation problem. The incident was first reported at 5:25 p.m. Wednesday. Customers who were affected live in the zip code areas 84401, 84310, 84404.

Crews were delayed slightly by the closure of State Route 39, which was blocked so emergency crews could respond to the #AlaksaFire, near the Alaska Inn, in Weber Canyon.

Fire crews let Rocky Mountain Power crews through the area to make repairs, which are now complete.
