The power should be back on in Wabash County, Illinois after several reports of outages late Thursday night.
Mt. Carmel Public Utility's vice president of operations, Larry Horrall, tells 14 News floodwaters caused a power pole to fall.
Power was off for one hour to approximately 5,000 households before Company officials were able to by-pass the problem by re-routing power.
