An official with Mid-American Energy says more than 3,300 homes and businesses in Council Bluffs were without power Saturday morning. Company spokesperson Ann Thelen said the outage was reported at 7:40 a.m., and the power was restored by around 9:30-a.m.

The outage, she said, was caused by a storm that passed through the area, and affected customers in the south part of Council Bluffs.
