A transmission line failure knocked out power for 3,500 customers in Macon Friday morning, according to Georgia Power.

A Georgia Power spokesman says the outage was caused by a transmission-line failure north of the city.

The outage happened around 10 a.m.; according to Georgia Power, all those customers had power back before noon.

The Medical Center of Central Georgia says they briefly lost power but switch quickly to auxiliary power; they say no patients were ever in danger.

Viewers also told 13WMAZ that traffic lights along Riverside Drive and elsewhere around the downtown were out.

Georgia Power said they were unsure of the cause of the line failure.
