LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Power outages were reported Monday, impacting portions of Lancaster, Gage and Jefferson Counties.

Lincoln Electric System was working to restore an outage in Lincoln that was generally near O street and east of 84th. As of 5:08 p.m., all LES outages have been resolved.

An earlier outage impacting customers in east Seward had been restored.
