The power is back on in southwest Roanoke.
15-hundred homes and businesses lost power earlier this morning.
We're still working on getting an explanation from Appalachian Power.
The power came back on for all of those people within the last half hour.
Update: 8:30am -- Tuesday, June 24, 2013
Almost 1,500 homes and businesses don't have power this morning in Roanoke.
We know this outage is affecting the southwest part of the city, but other areas could have problems as well.
WDBJ7 is working to get in touch with Appalachian Power to see what's going on.
We'll let you know as soon as we find out what is causing the power outage.
