About 9,000 MidAmerican Energy customers in and around Moline, Illinois lost power for up to an hour and a half Tuesday morning, January 29, 2013.
The outage happened just after 5:30 a.m.
A spokesperson for MidAmerican Energy said the outage was not planned; it was caused by a repair needed at a substation.
