CINCINNATI - The power is back on after a failure at a University of Cincinnati sub station caused outages across the campus and University of Cincinnati Medical Center Friday morning.

UC has their own sub station, so the outages only extend through the university and its hospital. UC representatives say an equipment failure in the sub station caused the outage.

UCMC representatives said the outage affected non-primary systems and at no time were patients at risk. The hospital is running on back up power.

School and hospital representatives have not yet said how many people were affected by the power outage.

Officials said the power was restored at about 11:20 a.m.
