Power restored to most NV Energy customers hit by outage in Henderson

More than 500 NV Energy customers remained without power in the Las Vegas Valley early Thursday.

Most of the outage was encompassed in the 89014 zip code. The company said the outage was caused by an “underground equipment failure.” Some traffic lights in the area were also not working correctly.
