ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Power has been restored following an outage that impacted about 2,038 customers, according to PNM.

The outage was reported at about 7 p.m. and was caused by a broken crossarm, PNM said. The outage spanned north to south from Bellemah Street NE to Grand Avenue NE and east to west from Chelwood Park Boulevard NE to Eubank Boulevard NE. Power to that area has since been restored.

Another outage, which was reported just before 6 p.m., was affecting about 1,185 customers. The outage spans north to south from Candelaria to Menaul and east to west from San Mateo to Carlisle. Crews were expected to have power restored by about 7:31 p.m. No word yet on if power has been fully restored to that area.

A third outage also impacted about 902 customers earlier in the evening. The outage spanned north to south from Chico NE to Southern Ave SE and east to west from Britt Street NE to Wyoming Boulevard NE. Power to that area has since been restored. PNM says it was caused by a downed power line.
