There are reports of a power outage in some areas of Great Falls.
The reports started coming in at around 8 a.m. on Sunday.
We've heard from viewers that power is out near Gibson Park, near 2nd Avenue North and 14th Street, and 6th Avenue North at 8th Street.
No word yet on the cause; we will update when we find out.
(UPDATE, 9:33 a.m.) KRTV viewer Marjie McClellan tells us the cause of the outage is near the corner of 2nd Avenue North and 9th Street, and that NorthWestern Energy is at the scene.
(UPDATE, 9:57 a.m.) The power outage was caused by a squirrel.
NorthWestern Energy has a crew at the scene in front of Morning Light; at 9:45 a.m., they said that it could be between one and two hours before power is fully restored.
