SALT LAKE CITY — Rocky Mountain Power has confirmed just over 19,000 power outages affecting customers across the state, but they are reportedly unrelated to each other. 

Jona Whitesides with the company said it’s a “perfect storm situation.” 

The affected areas, as of 6:35 p.m., are: 

  • North Ogden, affecting 1,342 customers
  • Tooele County, affecting 1,853 customers
  • Two outages in Mapleton, affecting  4,804 customers
  • Three outages in Santaquin, affecting 6,266 customers
  • Two outages in Moroni, affecting 1,324
  • Two outages in Enoch, affecting 1,802. 

The Springville Police Department also confirmed that the power is out in the southern part of Utah County, affecting Spanish Fork, Springville, and Mapleton.

Springville City said this power outage was caused by a fire at the mouth of Spanish Fork.

They said to treat all intersections that have stop lights as a four way stop in a Facebook post. 

Whitesides said the outage in North Ogden was caused by a car accident and the one in Moroni was caused by a damaged line. The other causes are still being investigated.

Rocky Mountain Power said they expect to have power back on by June 15 at 2 a.m.
