The city’s Chief Administrative Officer Randy Jones says the outage affected a five to six-block area of the city.

An issue with a power breaker could have been the cause.

The power has since been restored following a 30 to 45-minute outage.

Also, people as far away as Aberdeen reported hearing a loud boom. It's unclear at this time if the West Point outage is related to this sound. 

This is a developing story.
