Amarillo, TX - After an hours-long early morning power outage in north Amarillo, the lights are now back on for residents.

The power went out just after 5:00 Monday morning affecting nearly 2,800 residents.

Xcel Energy says there were transmission issues on the line feeding the Cherry Street substation which caused low voltage issues.
