TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Tuesday morning's storms are to blame for nearly 6,000 customers to be without power in Leon county. Lightning struck a server around 4 am on the west side of Tallahassee causing residents from Appleyard Dr. to Woodward Ave. all the way north to Stone Rd. to have no power for nearly two hours. That server has since been reset and power has been restored to those customers.

According to Allison Farris, a spokesperson for the city of Tallahassee, as of 8:15 am, less than 100 customers are currently without power near Old St. Augustine Rd. and April Rd. due to a downed tree limb on a power line. Crews are currently on the scene and power should be restored by mid-morning.

Across Leon County, another 560 customers were without power near the Hilliardville Substation. A spokesperson for Talquin Electric says crews were on the scene early Tuesday morning and have since restored power to those affected.

More showers and storms are expected throughout the day. Though severe weather is not expected, a few of the storms could have some elevated wind gusts which could knock down tree limbs or uproot trees and impact power lines.
