ANCHORAGE -

Power is back online after an outage that affected more than a thousand people in the Willow area early Tuesday, according to the Matanuska Electric Association.

According to a post on MEA’s Facebook page at about 5 a.m., about 1,150 of the co-op’s customers from Willow north to Mile 85 of the Parks Highway were hit by the blackout. A second post says power was restored at about 6:40 p.m.

Anyone still without power in the area should call MEA at 907-746-7697.
