DENVER — Xcel Energy said Lower Downtown Denver neighborhoods, especially around Coors Field, were hit by power outages Wednesday night.

The utility said about 7,700 customers were affected about 7:30 p.m.

Power went out for about 2,500 customers in some Lakewood neighborhoods later in the evening.

Most of the outages were on the north side of downtown in the LoDo and BallPark neighborhoods.

An Xcel spokeswoman said windblown debris into a substation caused the outage from 14th to 20th streets and Champa to Platte streets.

Power was restored by 10:15 p.m.
