Bird causes Jackson power outages

Power outages occurred in two circuits in Jackson today after a bird flew into the lines, Jackson Mayor Barbara Lohr said.

She said sections of the town's power have been restored for about the last hour, but the power went out in different areas almost two hours ago.

Lohr said the power is out at her home on East Jackson Boulevard, but she also received reports about outages near City Park as well.

Crews are working on fixing the outages, and Lohr said power should be restored shortly.
