A large power outage affected around 32,000 customers in northeast Albuquerque on Wednesday morning.

The power outage was reported just before 9 a.m. PNM restored the power by 9:30 a.m.

The cause of the outage is unknown, but PNM says transmission lines seem to be the problem.

PNM's outage map showed homes, businesses and street lights without power from I-25 all the way to Tramway.
