Chase County

More than 1,000 Evergy customers in Chase County lost power for about four hours Sunday morning.

High winds were likely to blame when, at around 8:15 a.m. Sunday morning, customers in Cottonwood Falls, Strong City, Elmdale and Saffordville reported outages.

Power was restored shortly after noon.

As of 10:30 a.m., Evergy — formerly Westar Energy — crews were evaluating the situation and an estimated time of restoration was not listed.
