A high-voltage power line was cut by a construction crew on the University of Arkansas campus on Monday morning, causing a widespread power failure.
The cut caused a power failure in more than 30 buildings on the campus about 9 a.m., UA spokesman Steve Voorhies said.
As of 10 a.m., power was mostly restored, except for in five buildings and some fraternity houses, Voorhies said. Power was completely restored about 10:15 a.m., the school announced.
There weren't been any campuswide evacuations or class cancellations, but Voorhies said professors had the option to cancel classes if the class is held in a building without power.
