NEWPORT, Ky. -- Newport Aquarium will reopen for normal hours Sunday after a power outage forced the attraction to close.

Duke Energy restored power Saturday night. The aquarium will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.

All the animals were OK, as the aquarium ran on backup generators until power was restored. However, the aquarium was closed to guests for the day.

Anyone who bought a ticket in advance can get a refund or use the ticket at a future date.
