Posted: Updated:
FORT JACKSON, SC (WIS) -

Officials at Fort Jackson are trying to figure out what caused a power outage Wednesday afternoon.

The Fort Jackson Public Affairs Offices says most, if not all, of Fort Jackson lost power at about 12:00 p.m.  While power has been restored in some areas, some traffic lights are not functioning and some buildings remain without power.

There is no timetable on when power might be fully restored. All emergency operations, such as the hospital, are running on backup generators.

The cause of the outage has not been determined.
