Power is now back on in Council Bluffs after a cable failure caused 1,900 customers to lose electricity Tuesday afternoon.

The cable failure happened near 35th and Avenue A. Some neighbors report hearing a boom in the area just after 4 p.m. Crews with MidAmerican Energy were then called to the scene and power was back on by 4:45 p.m.
