A power outage hit the campus of Utah State University late Wednesday morning.

USU facilities management workers confirmed the electrical failure hit about 9 a.m. Officials were blaming a "cascading power failure" for the interruption, but did not have specifics.

Service gradually returned building by building and by 1:30 p.m. the school's Facilities Management staff reported power had been restored campus wide.

USU maintains an electrical utility separate from the Logan city system. Logan power officials reported no outages outside the campus.

The outage affected multiple buildings, among them the Old Main and Business structures.
