Just after nearly 2,000 Davis County residents had their power restored Tuesday night, a single outage in Millcreek knocked out electricity for more than 1,500 homes.

Rocky Mountain Power reports 1,567 customers affected by the outage, which was first reported just before 10:15 p.m.

The company estimated that it will be restored by 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Then around 10:30 p.m., an outage in South Ogden knocked out power for 1,866. The estimated time of restoration is by 4 a.m.

The outages may have been caused by the strong winds hitting the Wasatch Front.

About two hours earlier, 1,910 RMP customers lost power in the area of eastern Kaysville/Fruit Heights. It was restored around 10 p.m.
