American Electric Power reported that it was a squirrel in a substation that knocked out power to many of its Muskingum County customers Thursday morning.

AEP first reported the outage to 2,246 of its customers around 9:40 a.m. It took two hours for power to be fully restored.

AEP said the area involved in the outage included those south of Interstate 70 and east of Underwood Avenue and west of the Airport.
