Power is back on for a large part of Cabell County.
Coolers were closed and the doors were shut to keep customers out the IGA on Route 2 in Lesage.
Customers were kept out since no transactions could go through.
The store manager says the power went out here around 8:30 Wednesday morning.
A spokesperson with American Electric Power said a transformer blew, knocking out power for homes and businesses in parts of Barboursville, Ona and Route 2 in Lesage.
Several stoplights were also without power making driving through intersections tricky.
However, A.E.P. said power should be back on by mid-afternoon.
